How to Apply to FASDenver

Take the next step toward giving your child a world of opportunities through a proven, research-based French immersion education. As a DPS charter school, students apply to our school through the DPS SchoolChoice process which takes place January 15 – February 18, 2020.

By completing a SchoolChoice application, your child is entered into the DPS SchoolChoice lottery for the upcoming school year. The application is not a guarantee of admission and does not commit your child to attending FASDenver. Families are notified regarding student placement in late March.

Kindergarten students must be 5 years old on or before October 1, 2020 to qualify for the 2020-21 school year.  The state of Colorado now provides full tuition for Kindergarten students.

Why SchoolChoice?

Prior to SchoolChoice, DPS families who wanted to apply to schools other than their neighborhood school had to complete different applications on different timelines for different schools. This process was stressful, confusing and inherently inequitable. So, in 2012, DPS implemented a unified one-application, one-deadline system to simplify enrollment for families and ensure equitable access quality schools. DPS is one of the only districts in the country in which all schools participate.
