Universal Pre-Kindergarten Registration



The Hamilton Central School Universal Pre-Kindergarten /Targeted Pre-K program is currently accepting applications for our 2019-2020 school year.

The UPK program is FREE to children who live in the Hamilton Central School District and will be age 4 by 12/1/19. Applications must be submitted by March 29, 2019.  A lottery will be held as per UPK guidelines, for all students who have registered by the deadline.  Students that are not accepted into the UPK program, may then be eligible for our Targeted Pre-K program, if their families meet the entrance criteria.  If the number of applicants exceeds the number of openings within our Pre-K program, acceptance will be based on eligibility and Pre-K guidelines.

Applications may be found on-line on the HCS website ( or picked up at the school.  If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Kevin Ellis at (315) 824-6330.
