Little Acorn Academy and Pre-K Lottery Run Concurrently with the SCCPSS Choice Application Process in 2024

Published on: 1/16/2024
​​This year, for the first time, the lottery application process for Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools’ Pre-K program and Little Acorn Academy programs for three-year-olds will run at the same time as the district’s Choice Application Process.  

The Little Acorn Academy is a full-day program for 3-year-olds. The first Little Acorn Academy opened at Gould Elementary School in 2022 and was so successful, that a second location on the city’s east side was opened at the Early Learning Center at Henderson E. Formey, Jr. School just a year later. In order to apply, children must be 3 years old on or before September 1, 2024, and must be potty-trained.  Families residing in the Gould attendance zone will have priority at that location, those residing in the Shuman Elementary, Williams Elementary, and Formey Early Learning Center attendance zones will have priority for admission at Formey. The Little Acorn Academy Application can be accessed at Choice.SCCPSS.com beginning January 27, 2024, through February 9, 2024.

The Savannah-Chatham County Public School System has 65 Georgia Lottery funded Pre-K classes serving a maximum of 20 students in each class. Applicants must be four years of age on or before September 1, 2024, and reside in Chatham County.  Our program provides a full day (6.5 hours) of appropriate instructional services utilizing the Creative Curriculum to students for the regular school calendar year. The purpose of the Pre-K Program is school readiness and transition to Kindergarten for success in later school years.  Applications for the Pre-K program lottery can be accessed at PK.SCCPSS.com beginning January 27, 2024, through February 9, 2024.
