Age Requirement

  • In North Carolina, all Kindergarten students must have reached the age of 5 on or before August 31 of that school year. Board policy allows for the following exceptions:

    • Students who were enrolled in Kindergarten in another U.S. state with a different age requirement
    • Students who meet each of the following requirements for early entrance to Kindergarten:
      • The child reached the age of four on or before April 16
      • The child is presented for enrollment no later than the end of the first month of the school year
      • The principal of the school finds, based on information submitted by the child's parent or guardian, that the child is gifted and has the maturity to justify admission to school. In making such a determination, the principal shall follow guidelines established by the State Board of Education and the Superintendent.
        The Board regards admission of a four-year-old child to be an extraordinary measure that should not be used merely because the child is developmentally advanced.
