Thank you for your interest in The Branch Academy. Both our Pre-K3 and Pre-K4 programs are five days of the week from 8:00 A.M. until 3:00 P.M. Our school day begins at 8:30 A.M. Daily carpool drop-off begins at 8:00 A.M., and pick-up is from 2:30 until 2:50 P.M.
Some of our students will have the option of filling one of the limited spots for a half day program that ends at Noon. Requests for a Noon dismissal spot will be taken according to your child’s position on our wait list. In the interest of accommodating the varying needs of all of our families, we do have an After the Bell program that runs until 5:30 P.M. Please see our After the Bell page for more details.
The Branch Academy follows the Hillsborough County school year calendar, including holidays, teacher workdays, and any possible Early Release days.
If you feel that our learning environment will provide the Early Childhood educational experience that you are seeking for your child, please reserve your child’s spot on the wait list by completing a Wait List Application online and mailing or bringing a non-refundable check for $25 to The Branch Academy (2909 W. Azeele St. Tampa, FL 33609). Once we have received the Wait List Form, together with the wait list fee, we will add your child to the Wait List for his or her respective year of entry. We will schedule tours in the fall or winter preceding your child’s school year of entry.
