Families living in Nelson County, but outside the boundaries of the Bardstown City School District, may apply for their child(ren) to attend Bardstown City Schools.  According to a contractual agreement between the two districts, only a limited number of students who reside in the Nelson County School District may attend Bardstown City Schools. 

This applies only to families who live in the Nelson County district.  It does not apply to other surrounding school districts.

If you are unsure whether your residence is located within the Bardstown City School District, please call (502) 331-8800.               

Families who live in the Nelson County school district who wish to apply for enrollment in Bardstown City Schools for the 2019-20 school year must complete an online application. The online application will be available on the Bardstown City Schools website beginning at 9:00 am on Wednesday, January 2. 

The following families do not need to complete an application:
  • Those who live in the Nelson County School District whose children already attend Bardstown City Schools.
  • Those who have moved their residence during the current school year from within the Bardstown School District to the Nelson County School District, but whose children are enrolled in Bardstown City Schools.

The following do need to complete the online application:

  • Families who live in the Nelson County School District who already have a child attending Bardstown City Schools and wish to enroll a sibling. Siblings of currently enrolled Bardstown students are automatically accepted for enrollment, but an online application must be completed for the sibling.
  • Families of NCS resident students currently enrolled in the four-year-old program at Bardstown Early Childhood who wish for their child to attend Kindergarten at Bardstown Primary School. Per the contractual agreement, openings will be filled in the order in which the online application is received.
  • Any other Nelson County district family wishing to apply for enrollment in Bardstown City Schools must complete the online application. Per the contractual agreement, openings will be filled in the order in which the online application is received.

The online application will be available beginning at 9:00 am on Wednesday, January 2, 2019. Applications are time-stamped as they are received and openings are filled in the order received. No paper applications will be available. For those who do not have computer access, computers and assistance will be available at the Central Office of Bardstown City Schools, 308 North Fifth Street, and at any of our school offices beginning at 9:00 am on Wednesday, January 2.
