Pre-kindergarten students must be toilet-trained before the first day of school. Seven Hills will accommodate “accidents,” however, when the teachers deem accidents too frequent, parents will be asked to keep their child at home until they are toilet-trained. If a child is not toilet-trained by the start of school, we are happy to work with you to establish a delayed start date.

This is not applicable to students entering the pre-kindergarten for 2-year-old program.

Visit for news, sports schedules, team rosters, and more. Team sign-up information can be found in the Registration section of the home page. Contact the Athletics Department administrative assistant Amy Ilg, at or 513.504.4094 with any questions.
