Primary School (K-5th)

Applying to Next Generation School is a simple, straightforward process. The following instructions will help guide you through the steps.


1. Download and print the appropriate application (below) or call Ms. Krystal Moya, Admininstrative Coordinator, 217.356.6995, to pick up a copy from the school.

2. Complete the application and the parent/guardian questionnaire.

3. Send or bring the completed application along with the questionnaires and the appropriate payment for the grade of application:

  • For Primary A (Kindergarten), a $50 non-refundable application fee and a $500 tuition deposit are required at the time of priority application. These fees can be combined on the same check and should be addressed to the school. After the priority deadline, the $500 tuition deposit is not required and the student applying will be placed in the waitpool.
  • For Primary B (1st Grade) through Primary F (5th Grade), a $50 non-refundable application fee is required at the time of application.
  • 4. Give the appropriate teacher recommendation forms to the student’s current teacher(s) with a stamped envelope for them to mail directly to:

    Next Generation School

    2521 Galen Drive

    Champaign, IL 61821

    Please note, application for admission is not complete without having received the $50 application fee and the sealed teacher recommendation form.


    Admission for our kindergarten class begins in September with an initial application period for students currently enrolled in our Preschool Program. In late October, we begin reviewing applications from students outside the Next Generation School community. We do not ask our kindergarten applicants to come for a full day on-campus visit so the teacher recommendation form must be completed for a student’s application to be considered. If the priority application period has concluded, we still encourage you to apply since we evaluate the wait pool in its entirety each time a position becomes available.


    In early spring, we begin evaluating candidates for any positions that have become available. We ask candidates to visit for an entire school day and academic assessments are done at that time. Application dates are not a determining factor for admittance but can serve as a deciding factor should two candidates have equal qualifications. With this in mind, we encourage you to submit your application materials at your earliest convenience to ensure your child is in our wait pool of potential candidates.
