Get Enrolled in District 49

Central Enrollment Office Assistance
We're open Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
We are now accepting enrollment applications for the 2017-2018 school year (school year begins August 2017). When completing an application, choose 2017-2018 if enrolling for the school year beginning in August 2017. If enrolling for the remainder of the current school year, choose 2016-2017. Do not complete an application if your child is currently enrolled in preschool at one of our coordinated (neighborhood) schools, Imagine Classical Academy Indigo Ranch or Pikes Peak School of Expeditionary Learning.
Our enrollment team will assist in getting your child registered in District 49. We're located at 3850 Pony Tracks Drive in Colorado Springs. Our office phone number is 719.494.8911. You may call with any questions, or use our live chat feature.

To expedite the enrollment process, ensure you have all required documents listed on this page. An enrollment cannot be started without these documents. It is each parent or guardian's responsibility to upload these documents. If you do not have the birth certificate or immunization records, please contact the previous school or pediatrician and request to have them sent directly to you. The enrollment office does not request school records or accept faxes from previous schools.
Once enrolled in District 49, school level registrars request records, such as transcripts, grades and attendance. For new students enrolling in high school, parents or guardians should request transcripts from the previous school and take them to the new school as soon as an application is complete. This helps high school counselors quickly review credits and compile a schedule, which includes an official start date.

If you are enrolling a new student in District 49, or transferring a student from Banning Lewis Ranch Academy, Rocky Mountain Classical Academy or Power Technical Early College to another District 49 school, complete each enrollment step outlined below. Existing District 49 students, including those in the district's other charter schools, are not required to re-enroll for the following school year.
If your child is a current District 49 student transferring from one neighborhood District 49 school to another, please contact both the former and new schools about the new enrollment.  A new application is not required as this is a transfer rather than a new enrollment.
I'm Ready to Enroll. What are my next steps?
Before beginning - please carefully read the enrollment document requirements.  Applications that do not have the required documentation will be returned to the applicant.
The entire enrollment process will take approximately 20-30 minutes. Having all required documents scanned and ready for upload will expedite your enrollment experience. If you do not have a scanner, or are having difficulties with it, feel welcome to stop by our offices Monday-Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. We're happy to assist you.

The application must be completed either entirely at home or in our offices. If you anticipate having any issues completing an application at home, please bring all documents with you, and we will assist you in completing the application and uploading the documents here in our offices.
If your student previously attended District 49 schools, left and is now re-enrolling, a new enrollment application - with all required documents - will be required.
Our 30-day Requirement: Unsubmitted applications are held in our system for 30 days, after which time they are deleted. This also applies to applications submitted and returned to you for incomplete or unacceptable documents, if not corrected, resubmitted and processed prior to the 30-day deadline. Please review the application requirements below carefully to ensure that your application has all required documents prior to submitting. The date that you receive the email with the application link starts the 30-day time clock.

The documents listed below must be scanned and ready for upload. When all documents have been gathered, please begin here:

IMPORTANT: When entering information in the Student section of the application, keep any written entries to as few words/characters as possible.  For example in the Previous School section, instead of entering Rocky Mountain Classical Academy, enter RMCA.  If too many characters are entered in a section the system will send an error message and you will have to enter the information again. 
Internet Explorer or Edge (Windows 10) will not work for online enrollment. To ensure a smooth process, please use Firefox, Chrome or Safari. The most supported browser is Firefox.
