Acceptance into the program is not on a first-come, first-served basis, and a limited number of Pre-Kindergarten spots are available. To be eligible, you must meet the following criteria:

  1. Children must be 4 years old on or before Sept. 30 of the school year for which you are applying.
  2. The child's primary residence must be in Virginia Beach, VA.

There are no exceptions to age and residency requirements. In addition, eligible students are selected based on the following VPI eligibility criteria and identified risk factors:

  • Having low family income (based on Federal Poverty Guidelines);
  • Having a parent who did not complete high school;
  • Lacking fixed, regular or adequate housing (homelessness); and/or
  • Having an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) for the child while falling in a qualifying family income bracket—the IEP team will determine if this general education classroom is the most appropriate setting.

Other factors are also considered but have lower risk values.
