Open Enrollment

“Open Enrollment” is the option for Colorado students to enroll in a public school other than their assigned “neighborhood school.”

School districts, and some individual schools, set their own time schedule for accepting open enrollment applications. Many school districts have open enrollment deadlines in December, January, and February, so be sure to plan ahead. Check with individual charter and option schools, as they often have different application guidelines and timelines than the local school district.

See the resources below for more details, especially for high school student athletes.
