To begin the process, please fill out online application form. If you need assistance, please visit the main office. Looking for 2020-21? This will be open in December for new families to apply!
Every Spring, AXL has a public lottery to place new students. You will be notified after the lottery of your child's placement or waitlist status.
If you are enrolling and the lottery has passed, the school will notify you of your child's placement or waitlist status.
Once accepted via lottery or from the waitlist, you will be sent a link to register.
Please call the main office at 303.377.0758 for any status updates for students on the waitlist.
AXL selects its students by random lottery held in public on February 12, 2020. Only those students whose enrollment forms are completed in full and received before the enrollment form deadline are included in the lottery. Students whose enrollment forms are received after the lottery will be added in order of receipt to the existing class list or waiting list.
If the pool of students exceed the available openings during the lottery, the students who did not receive a position will be placed on the waitlist. If the lottery has passed and there are no available spaces for the designated grade level, your child will be placed on the waiting list in order of receipt following the lottery waiting list.
AXL supports whole families to create a passionate and sustainable school community. Siblings of enrolled students receive priority enrollment pending completed enrollment forms received on time for the lottery.
Children of AXL Staff receive priority admissions if the enrollment forms are completed and received by the designated deadline. These children may be enrolled regardless of the staff member's ongoing employment and will not exceed 20% of the school’s population. Employees’ children do not participate in the lottery.
AXL is a public charter school authorized by Aurora Public Schools (APS) and an open enrollment school, like every other public school in Colorado. Priority enrollment is given to students who reside within the district. Enrollment is offered to students residing outside APS only as space permits.
This is the final step to secure your child's place at AXL Academy. To reach this step, you have received notification from the school of the lottery placement or open position. Please fill out the online registration form and bring the required documents to the main office.
