SCHOOL YEAR 2018/2019:
Step 1: New families interested in enrolling their children in the Homeschool Enrichment Program (Grades 1-8) or the regular classes (Kindergarten – Grade 8) in the Fall 2018 must submit a SY18-19 Intent to Enroll form to place their children in the enrollment lottery. The lottery will occur at 6:00 pm on March 6, 2018. After the lottery, families will be notified of their children’s placement in the classroom or on the wait list.
*We highly recommend that kindergarten children are 5 years old by June 1st of their enrolling year and that 1st grade students are closer to 7 years old before entering 1st grade. Some children turning 5 between June 2nd and October 1st may be ready for kindergarten. As a Colorado State Charter we are required to consider ‘early admittance’ of kindergarten children who would be enrolling at the age of 4 years old . This is based on multiple criteria including cognitive abilities and testing is required at the parent’s expense. Early access decisions will be a consensus process within the school determination team, for more information please contact the school Director.
Step 2: Sign up for upcoming information sessions and school tours. To RSVP for a school information session, please click on one of the links below:
