Admission to The Open Classroom is open to all students entering grades K – 8.
Before you apply to the Open Classroom, we want to make sure you understand that this is a unique charter school. Take some time to look at the Philosophy and Family Involvement pages on this website. These pages will give you some idea of what we stand for and what we will ask of your family.
Online registration is on-going for the 2020-2021 school year. Please reference your registration email, and contact Nicole in the office with any queries
The Admission Process
It is now required that you attend either our Parent Information Night or a school tour to have your application included in our enrollment lottery. Be sure to sign in at either event. If you have already attended either of the above, our records will so indicate. If the scheduled times and dates don’t work for you, individual tours may be scheduled. Contact the school at 801-578-8144 and speak with Nicole.
Families will be notified of the lottery results two weeks after it is run. If your child is offered a space, we ask that you please let us know by the deadline stated in the letter you will receive whether or not you plan to enroll your child. If we do not hear from you by that deadline, we will offer the space to the next student on the waiting list. Applicants with sibling/s currently enrolled will receive priority.
Your child’s chances of being admitted vary, depending on how many applicants are applying and the number of available spaces.
For questions related to Admissions, please contact the Registrar at 801-578-8144 or email@example.com

Observe a Classroom
If you have attended a tour and want to learn more, we encourage you to observe a classroom in action. You may come alone, or your child is welcome to come with you. Call the main office at 801-578-8144 or email Nicole to be put in touch with a teacher who will schedule a time for you to visit.
There are parking restrictions in the neighborhood around our campus, and you may need to allow extra time to find an appropriate parking space. Please remember that we are unable to accommodate children during open houses and or tours. We ask that you arrange child care in advance. Your child is welcome to visit the school at another time.
