Application Process

Any child may apply to Connect if he or she lives in California and will turn five before September 1 of the school year. There is no admission test and no tuition. We give priority to residents of the Redwood City School District.   The application can be accessed electronically at the through the Connect SchoolMint site at the following link:

  • At the conclusion of an open enrollment period, we conduct a public lottery to determine which students were admitted and to create our wait list.
  • We are glad to accept additional applications to add to our wait list.

PLEASE NOTE: The enrollment process for Connect is separate from the Redwood City School District. You can find information about that process on the district’s site.
