Schools Enrollment

AppleTree_SW-20AppleTree Early Learning Public Charter School is an engaging, full-day, tuition-free public charter preschool welcoming all children living in the District of Columbia.

Waitlist Families:

Now that the enrollment deadline has passed, we will be offering seats to our waitlist families. If you are a waitlist family, you can expect a call when a seat becomes available and your number is next in the order to be called.

If you are offered a seat for the 2018-2019 school year, please complete the online registration here.
New families must complete the online registration prior to submitting the following:
  • Current valid photo ID
  • Current proof of DC residency
  • Child’s current health/immunization and dental certificate
  • Child’s original birth certificate
Your child’s seat is not secured until this online process is completed and required documents have been submitted to your AppleTree campus.
