Choice Enrollment

Families who wish to enroll their student in a school other than their assigned neighborhood school must complete a Choice Enrollment Application, available at schools or from the menu below, and submit it to their school of choice. Applications for First Round Choice Enrollment are accepted in January for the following school year. Students are accepted on a space available basis. Round one applications are prioritized through a lottery process. Waiting lists, which are prioritized, will be created if applicants exceed space available at the school. A separate application must be completed and submitted for each child. Open enrollment may affect athletic eligibility.

Choice enrolled students moving from elementary to middle school and middle to high school must submit a new Choice Enrollment Application.

If a student is not accepted at a school during the first round Choice Enrollment, the student will remain on the prioritized waitlist and be carried over to Second Round Choice Enrollment.

Check with individual schools regarding any required attendance at parent information nights or orientation.
