Asheville City Schools Preschool Program

    We offer high quality preschool education for 3- and 4-year-olds in the ACS district. For the 2022-2023 school year, preschool classrooms will be offered at the following elementary schools: Hall Fletcher, Ira B. Jones, Isaac Dickson, and Lucy S. Herring. A preschool room will also operate at Asheville High School, in partnership with the Career and Technical Education department. We'll update current and prospective families if additional preschool locations are added.
