Enrollment Selection Process

Pre-K admission is based on a Lottery drawing. It is not based on a first-come, first-serve basis. You must register your child at the Berrien County Board of Education to be eligible for the lottery drawing. The Pre-K Lottery Registration will end on February 15, 2023 at 3:30. There will be no exceptions to this date and time. Letters notifying parents of the lottery results will be mailed in March. A waiting list will be established for students not selected in the lottery.  Parents may continue to register their students after February 15 to be added to the waiting list. The Bright From the Start grant currently funds the Berrien Board of Education for six classes of 22 students.
