Choice for the 2022-2023 School Year

Submit application by January 31 deadline for priority consideration

The Adams 12 Five Star Schools Choice Program allows for students to apply to attend schools outside of their assigned attendance area boundary. The 2022-23 Choice application window opens December 1, 2021 at which time a list of schools open to Choice will be posted here. The deadline for priority consideration is January 31, 2022.

Applying for Choice is easy

Here’s how:

  • Find the Five Star school that best meets your child’s needs by viewing our Programs webpages, reviewing your boundary school, reviewing our list of schools and their geographic locations.

  • Apply between December 1, 2021 and January 31, 2022 by ranking up to four schools using the online Choice Application.

  • Enroll in your school after you get the Choice lottery results in late February 2022.  Your Choice results email will contain a custom link for your family to enroll.

More about the Choice Program

Entrance into high school programs with specialized admissions criteria like Horizon SOAR, Legacy 2000, Mountain Range High School of Business, Northglenn High STEM and EC@N-STEM Programs and Thornton High International Baccalaureate (IB) are managed directly by each school. In-district and out-of-district students wishing to attend high school programs with specialized admissions criteria must apply directly with the school’s program and do not need to apply with the Choice Program. More information about this process can be found on school websites.

Students who receive approval of their Choice application and attend schools outside their assigned attendance area are responsible for their own transportation to and from the school. Families eligible for homeless assistance services should consult with the Student and Family Outreach Program before choosing to participate in the Choice Program by calling 720-972-6015.
