Early Kindergarten Admission: North Carolina DPI permits public schools to admit children under the age of 5 into kindergarten, but there are a number of very specific and stringent requirements students must meet. Parents must submit results of standardized intellectual and achievement assessments (indicating scores at or higher than the 98th percentile in both areas), letters of recommendation, and work samples for consideration by a committee of TCEA educational professionals by August 1st before a child under the age of 5 may be officially accepted, even if the student has received a slot in the lottery. Please click the icon below for specific requirements and more information. In addition, we are including information from 16 NCAC 6E.0105, which outlines the admission requirements indicated by the North Carolina Department of Instruction. *The cut-off date for kindergarten is August 31st for their 5th birthday.*
