Kindergarten Registration & District Wide Open Houses
Only those students who are legal residents of the Newburgh District and who are of legal age are entitled to attend Newburgh Schools. A child’s residence is determined by the residence of the child’s parents or legal custodial person.
Non-Resident families who wish to enroll their children in the Newburgh School District must first apply in writing and are considered based on a number of established criteria. All Non-Resident students must pay tuition.
Questions concerning residency eligibility should be brought to the attention of the Office of Registration located at 124 Grand Street or call (845) 534-KIDS.
