Open Enrollment

Overview

Open Enrollment is designed to enable any student to attend a school or program outside their district of residence. This choice program empowers parents and guardians to select the school that is the right fit for their child, regardless of where they live.

Before Selecting a School or Program

  • Identify student's needs and interests and desirable educational experiences.
  • Contact school or district office for information on educational options.
  • Tour school: ask questions of principals, teachers, parents, and students.

K-12 Open Enrollment Application Process

All families wishing to open enroll in Eden Prairie Schools must complete the Open Enrollment Application (printed and filled out) along with the student enrollment forms (Kindergarten and/or Grades 1-12). Kindergarten and Grades 1-12 enrollment forms can be submitted online or printed and filled out. These forms can be turned in to Laurie Hemstock at the same time.
