Important Notes:

BFCCPS will offer 96 spaces for students in Kindergarten; applications for Grades One through Eight will all receive a wait list number.  Odds of acceptance will vary depending on how many applications are received each year.

Please be sure to read the BFCCPS Enrollment Policy posted hereThe policy has been updated since last year, and we ask all applicants to take a moment to review it in detail. In particular, the policy has an important change with respect to “actual residency.” Under this updated policy point, applications must reference where the applicant currently lives.

If you are in the process of moving, you should apply with your current, actual residency not your future residency as per a leasing agreement or purchase and sale. Once you actually reside in your new home; you can update your residency accordingly.

BFCCPS reserves the right to rescind or retract offers of admission, unenroll students, or terminate the enrollment of currently attending students if information given on the application, or if documents provided to establish residency or proof of age are determined to be fraudulent or falsified.
