Registration open for MACS pre-K, kindergarten

Registration is now open and ongoing for 2020-21 Kindergarten and Universal Pre-K at Mexico Academy and Central School District.

See below for specific details about registration information and links to the registration forms.

Kindergarten Information
Children who turn five years old by Dec. 1, 2020 are eligible for kindergarten registration.

Please note that a child currently enrolled in the MACS UPK program does not need to complete a registration packet.

New students (those not currently in the UPK program) are required to participate in Kindergarten screening, which will take place in early August. Once the district has registration information, caregivers will be contacted with a date for the kindergarten screening appointment.


Pre-K Information
MACS offers a Universal Pre-K (UPK) program to children who will be four years old by Dec. 1, 2020. UPK is state-funded and is free to MACS residents.

Classes are located at Mexico, Palermo and New Haven elementary schools. There is a half-day morning session and half-day afternoon session in each building. Transportation is provided to the school within your attendance zone.

Pre-K enrollment is first come, first served based on the receipt of a completed registration packet.

UPK classes fill quickly, and the district recommends completing your registration form as soon as possible to accommodate session preferences.
