BJAMS School Family

Below is the common admissions process from the time of application to the first day of school. The information below is related to the rolling application process. We are excited that you are thinking of joining our community and look forward to hearing from you!

Please note: We do accept applications on a rolling basis, but we formally screen students for pre-kindergarten and kindergarten at established screening dates (April and February/March, respectively). Enrollment for these two classes are on a first-come, first-serve basis. We will screen Pre-K and K classes throughout the year based on space available. For Pre-K, your child should turn 4 before September 30; for Kindergarten, your child should turn 5 before September 30.
