Jeffco Public Schools offers Choice Enrollment — any student in the county can apply to attend any Jeffco school that has space available.

Families who wish to enroll their student in a school other than their assigned neighborhood school must complete a Choice Enrollment Application, and submit it to their school(s) 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.

Attend an “Intro to Mountain Phoenix” Talk

During the application process, we require all families to attend an “Intro to Mountain Phoenix” Talk. Our goal is to provide you with insight into what it means to be a public charter school guided by the Core Principles of Waldorf Education, and to inform you of the unique qualities that set us apart.

Parents may submit applications before attending an Intro to Mountain Phoenix Talk. Parents are required to attend an Intro Talk before their children start school at Mountain Phoenix.

This is an excellent opportunity to come with questions and to learn more about our engaging curriculum and vibrant school culture. See Upcoming Tours & Talks for details.
