School of Choice

  • School of Choice is now closed for the 2020-2021 school year. Results will be released early March.

    The Cherry Creek School District gives its district residents the opportunity to apply for enrollment in the Cherry Creek school/program of their choice. Families may request that their child attend a Cherry Creek school outside the assigned attendance area. The School of Choice application is available online during the month of January. There is not a specific time that the forms will be made available or removed on Feb 1st. Please do not wait until the last minute to submit your application as late applications will not be accepted.

    There are NO PAPER FORMS available for the School of Choice application process.

    Applications are considered based on lottery and space availability. Priority is given to students with siblings currently attending the requested school and projected to return the following year.  Priority is also given to children of district employees. There is a limit of one (1) application per student and all information is verified for accuracy. 

    Parents are notified of the results by March 15th. Appeals may be submitted in writing to District Admissions by April 15th. The Appeals Committee will review all letters​ received, and parents will be notified of the final decision by May 15th.
