ARCADIA-- Enrollment for students new to the Arcadia Unified School District for the 2021-2022 
school year is now open. Families can enroll their students entirely online compli-ments of Arcadia 
Unified’s newly developed digital enrollment system. 

“We are very hopeful that our students will be able to be back on our campuses by the start of the 
2021-2022 school year, if not sooner,” Arcadia Unified Superintendent Dr. David Vannasdall said. “I 
am proud of the comprehensive education our teachers and our entire staff have continued to provide 
during distance learning and look forward to welcoming new families into our schools with the hope 
that we will be able to greet them in person in the fall.”

From now until March 1, families with students entering Transitional Kindergarten (TK), which are 
those students born between Sept. 2, 2016 and Dec. 2, 2016, and Kindergarten, children whose 5th 
birthday is on or before Sept. 1, 2021, are eligible to register. Beginning March 1, new students from all 
grade levels, TK-12th grade, are free to enroll. 

Arcadia Unified School District’s Program Highlights:

• Arcadia Unified has full-time counselors at every school

• All Arcadia Unified Elementary and Middle Schools Participate in the “Leader in Me” character 
development program

• All Arcadia Unified schools implement Restorative Practices

• Before and after school programs are provided by Right at School and are hosted on school campuses

Families are encouraged to enroll as soon as possible to ensure a smooth transition into their respective 
Arcadia Unified schools. New student enrollments are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. 
Arcadia Unified is expecting a high number of Transitional Kinder-garten (TK) and Kindergarten 
enrollments for the fall. Enrollments have transitioned to an entirely online process to help the community 
stay safe and are aligned with COVID-19 health protocols. 

Parents should be prepared to upload the required enrollment documents, such as proof of residency, 
age, and immunizations. Enrollment can be completed at 

For non-Arcadia residents who are interested in attending Arcadia Unified schools, the dis-trict does 
have a permit application process that is also now available online.
