STEP 1: School Assignment by Address
Your neighborhood school is assigned at the Cherry Creek School District Admissions Office, according to the location of your residence and the school attendance boundaries. Be aware that boundaries may change, so please contact District Admissions to confirm the assigned school for your address.
Step 2: CCSD Admissions Office
If your student is new to our school district or returning to Prairie from another school, the first step is to enroll your student with our District's Admissions Office. There are two District Admissions Offices where you can register your child(ren). Both offices are open Monday- Friday, 7:30am to 4:30pm. In addition to student registration, the District Admissions Office processes student records requests (including unofficial transcripts) for former students.

Registration is approximately 2 hours and then parents and students are dismissed for the day. Students will have their first full day of school the day after registration. Placement testing will take place at registration. If you have any questions, please call the Prairie Registrar at 720-747-3122.
The Cherry Creek School District allows its resident students to apply for enrollment in the Cherry Creek school/program of their choice. In other words, you may request that your child attend a Cherry Creek school outside your assigned attendance area. The School of Choice application process beginning with the 2015-16 school year will be an electronic application that you will be able to access online from January 1st - February 1st from any computer, at any time. Please note that there will be NO PAPER FORMS available for the School of Choice application process.
There is a limit of one (1) application per student and all information is verified for accuracy. Applications are considered on a space available basis with priority given to families with siblings at the school and to the children of employees of the district. Parents will be notified of the decision by March 15th and any appeals must be submitted in writing to District Admissions by April 15th.
Students currently attending a school under School of Choice or an IntraDistrict Transfer approved to the highest grade level do not need to submit an application to return to that school next year. Non-Resident applications will be available online starting April 1, 2015.
