Enrollment & Admissions

Abiding Savior Lutheran Preschool, Gainesville, Florida, admits children of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national, or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic or other school-administered programs.

Enrollment for the new school year, which begins in August, takes place in January. In-house registration begins the second Monday in January. Registration for the waiting list and the community begins the following week. Please call our office at 352-331-7770 or email us at preschool@abidingsavior.info if you would like more information.

Applications for enrollment may be obtained from the school office or may be downloaded from our website. Children are enrolled on a first come, first served basis until the program capacity is met. Priority will be given to returning students, siblings, and Abiding Savior Lutheran Church members. Current enrollment does not guarantee future enrollment. 

Waiting List

Prospective parents who wish to be placed on our waiting list can call or come in person to the school office to do so. Being on the waiting list does not mean that you are enrolled. It just means that you are waiting to be called once an opening becomes available, or when it is registration time for that school year. Being on the waiting list does not necessarily mean that there will be a spot for everyone on the list; however, the earlier you put your child on the list for their school year, the better. The waiting list is updated annually.
