Universal Pre-K Enrollment for 2023-2024 School Year

Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) is a New York State funded program specifically designed for 4-year-olds not eligible for kindergarten. Each year Port Jervis CSD invites eligible children who reside in the district to apply. Transportation is a part of this state-funded program. 

We are dedicated to a full-day (five-hour) UPK program. Port Jervis CSD is able to continue full-day programs at Hamilton Bicentennial Elementary School and Project Discovery. The play-based program engages students in social and emotional skills with a heavy emphasis on communication. 

Locations are determined by the lottery and families will be notified during the month of May.  Families are notified of lottery results via email. 

The UPK program is five days a week, Monday - Friday, 5 hours per day and follows the Port Jervis CSD school calendar. When Port Jervis K-5 students have off, UPK students do not have school.
