Thank you for choosing Bardstown City Schools!
Relationships are at the heart of Bardstown City Schools. Our staff members know each student by name and often know their family, making it possible to support students in ways that reach beyond the classroom. And we’re excited to welcome you and your family to the BCS Family!
One of the things that make our District so special is our vibrant community. We serve families that speak 12 different languages.
Our innovative teaching and offerings like STEAM Academy and the Strings Program, ensure students enjoy their education journey and are better prepared for their future.
We are committed to providing a personalized education that develops the heart, mind and body of every child, from early childhood to graduation.
Welcome to Bardstown City Schools!
Thank you for your interest in Bardstown City Schools. Students in grades Preschool-12 living outside the boundaries of the Bardstown City Schools district may apply for their child(ren) to attend BCS.
Before you apply here’s a few things you should know:
- Acceptance is based on capacity of a program, class, grade level, and school building. All P-12 new students residing out of the BCS boundaries are required to complete our Out-Of-District Application even if a family already has one child attending BCS.
- Bus transportation is not provided to out-of-district students.
- For early consideration for our enrollment into our preschool program at Bardstown Early Childhood Education Center families must apply between Jan. 3 – March 24. Applications submitted AFTER March 24th will not know their application status until late spring.
Families who live outside the boundaries of Bardstown City Schools who wish to apply for enrollment in Bardstown City Schools for the 2023-24 school year must complete our 2023-24 Out-Of-District Request for Enrollment Application.
Families who apply will receive notification on the status of their application in late April. At that time, if your application has been approved you will receive a link to complete BCS’s online enrollment.
