How do I enroll my student at ABS?

Thinking about ABS?

School tours are scheduled weekly on Thursdays at 9:30 am from October through March. Each tour is limited to 6 adults to limit the disruption to our students and teachers in the classrooms.

Parents interested in learning more about ABS and how to enroll their child should contact the front office to sign up for a tour (336) 748-4116, ext 1023.

Enrollment Application

The application process begins every January for the upcoming school year. Please click here to submit an application. Applications received January 1 through January 31 at 3 PM will be submitted for the lottery which is held and open to the public on the second Tuesday in February. Any applications submitted after 3 PM on January 31 will be added to the waitlist after the lottery in the order in which they were received.

Applicants accepted during the lottery will be notified by US postal service within seven days of the lottery. All others will be added to the waitlist in the order selected during the lottery.

Once a child is enrolled at ABS he or she has a spot each year thereafter unless withdrawn. Siblings of currently enrolled students receive priority placement but must fill out an enrollment application.

Students must be five years of age on or before August 31 of the year in which they are presented for enrollment.
