Alternative Kindergarten (AK)
The College Community School District offers the program Alternative Kindergarten for students whose parents feel they are not ready for the full day kindergarten program and wish to retain them for a year before entering Kindergarten.
Due to a limited number of openings, not all AK requests will be granted. Students work on a variety of skills, including academics, such as numbers and letters, and listening skills. AK is divided into two half-day sections; one in the morning and one in the afternoon. AK students must be 5 years old by September 15, 2022.
