Westerville City School District is opening its doors to the youngest learners in the community. Starting from 10:00 AM on Monday, November 13, families residing within the district boundaries can embark on the journey of enrolling their children in kindergarten for the academic year 2024-25.

The registration begins with a user-friendly online application. Upon completing this application, families are prompted to select a review date. This crucial step signals the district’s enrollment specialists to review the application. Following this, the specialists collaborate with families to finalize the registration process.
