Anne Arundel County Public Schools’ kindergarten registration for the 2021-2022 school year will get under way next week, and parents and guardians can reserve their child’s seat by enrolling online beginning on Wednesday, April 7, 2021.

Children enrolling in kindergarten must be 5 years old on or by September 1, 2021.

The primary option for registration will be AACPS’ online registration portal, though families unable to access the portal can contact the school their student will attend as described below. A link to the online portal can be found here beginning April 7. Families can also scan a QR code available at all elementary schools and on flyers distributed by AACPS to access the enrollment portal.

Families should have the following required documents in their possession and ready to be uploaded in a pdf, jpg, or png format when registering a child for kindergarten:

  • Proof of identity
  • The child’s original birth certificate or birth record
  • A copy of the student’s immunization record
  • Two proofs of residency (deed/lease/mortgage and current utility bill)
  • Custody order (if applicable)

For assistance in locating your assigned school, click on the Locate Your School link on and the AACPS website.

Information about the recommended immunizations for children entering school is available at www.cdc.gov/vaccines.

Families unable to access the registration portal have two additional options:

  • Contact their student’s school to have a staff member complete the enrollment form on their behalf and submit the required enrollment documents electronically.
  • Contact the school to schedule an in-person appointment. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a limited number of in-person appointments will be available at schools and some appointments may not be available until the summer months.

Walk-in registrations will not be permitted.

For those unfamiliar with the enrollment process, a video summarizing the key parts can be found here.
