A child must be four on or before the first day of school to be an eligible candidate for Early Access to kindergarten, or five years of age to be eligible for Early Access to first grade.

It is the policy of Aspen Ridge Preparatory School that children who are five (5) years of age on or before October 1st shall be given priority for enrollment to Kindergarten over those who are not five (5) years of age on October 1st.
