A Pupil Transfer Application form must be completed for each school to which a transfer is requested. Applications for the 2016-17 Kindergarten class will be accepted Monday, February 1, 2016 through Friday, April 15, 2016 by 4:00 p.m. All parents, including parents of ATS VPI students and those who have a sibling entering kindergarten, must complete the Pupil Transfer Application form for ATS. Applications for other grade levels are accepted at any time and added to the existing grade level wait list. The Kindergarten lottery will be held on Thursday, April 21, 2016, at 9:30 a.m.
The Pupil Transfer Application form is available at the schools, online at www.apsva.us/schooloptions, or by visiting or calling the School and Community Relations Department at 703-228-7667. Attendance at a School Information Session is highly recommended. These information sessions enable parents or guardians to visit the neighborhood school and the requested school, meet the principals, see the schools “in action” and get a general sense of the personalities of each of the schools.
Arlington Traditional School is located at 855 N. Edison St., near the intersection of George Mason Drive and Wilson Boulevard behind McDonalds. Enter the school through the main entrance on Edison Street. All other doors will be locked for security purposes. The information session begins promptly at the start time.
The Elementary Pupil Transfer application can be found at: Elementary Pupil Transfer Application for SY 2016-17 Admission.
