Welcome to Eleyo!

Johnston Community Education uses Eleyo for most of our course, preschool, and Kids Connection registrations.

1.  To start, you will need to first set up an account

2.  Once this is done, you can log in and set up your family profile. View Eleyo instructions to assist with this set up if needed. (If you are attending school year or summer KTC, you already have an account set up and do not need to create a new one.)

3.  Now search for and choose the classes or programs you would like to register for. If a class is full, add your name to a waiting list and we will contact you if a spot becomes available.
