FSMA Enrollment Q&A Archive
A: Each child requires his or her own enrollment form–just indicate the sibling on each, so we are sure to connect them. We can’t wait to receive your enrollment materials!
A: You may submit your application anytime during the Open Enrollment Window (the first Monday in November through the second Wednesday in January, to be included in the lottery). All applications will be considered equally during that time frame.
A: There are several websites available that allow you to see if you address is within the 5-mile radius surrounding the school. Access the one we use here. Remember, all Delaware residents are eligible to apply!
A: If one twin gets in, and there is still space, the other one will be automatically enrolled. We do have a sibling preference, and we will always strive to be sensitive to the unique needs of our parents/guardians and students.
A: Yes, our students will be participating in this assessment as it is a state requirement. While FSMA has lots of flexibility, we still participate in all state-wide mandates. Thanks for the question!
A: As far as Kindergarten enrollment age, students applying for Kindergarten must turn five years of age by August 31 of the enrolling school year. A birth certificate will be required for age verification. FSMA does not currently have a process for Early Admission to Kindergarten.
