Age Requirements and Grade Placement Guide

For Lower Elementary, grade-level placement is determined by the child’s age by December 30 of that year. Please note that no exceptions can be made. 


By August 31: 

  •  A Nursey child must be 2 to 4 years of age   

  • A KG1 child must be 4 years of age 

  •  A KG2 child must be 5 years of age 

  •  A Grade 1 child must be 6 years of age 


For Grades 2 – 12, grade-level placement depends on the child’s current curriculum and grade level, and the child’s readiness for the respective grade.
