Choice Enrollment

  • Choice Enrollment (also referred to as "Open Enrollment") is held annually beginning in January for the upcoming school year for students entering kindergarten through 12th grade. This is the process by which in-district and non-resident families may be granted authorization to enroll students in a school other than their assigned neighborhood school.

    Students who reside outside the boundaries of Lewis-Palmer School District are approved on a year-to-year basis in order to remain enrolled in Lewis-Palmer School District (not applicable to Monument Academy since charter school policies differ). 


Application and Policies

  • The Choice Enrollment Window for the upcoming 2022-2023 school year is now open and will run through 4:30 pm on February 4, 2022. See the Information Letter for more details.
