Enrollment & Lottery


We currently have a waitlist for several of our grade levels, and students on the waiting list are invited to enroll in the event that openings become available.

Enrollment Information

Enrollment Form: Click here to complete an application form online. Receipt of your enrollment will be confirmed by email or by phone within 48 hours.

Enrollment for the 2017-2018 school year must be received by March 4, 2017 in order to be eligible for the lottery.

Random Lottery: AXL selects its students by random lottery, held in public during the first week of March. 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 to the existing waiting list.

Wait List: Students not selected in the lottery are kept on the waiting list. It is the family’s responsibility to keep AXL updated if contact information changes throughout the year.

District Policy: 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 admissions are given to students who reside within the district. Admission is offered to students residing outside APS only as space permits.

Sibling/Household Policy: AXL supports whole families to create a passionate and sustainable school community. Siblings of enrolled students receive priority admissions if their applications are completed and received on time.

Staff Policy: Children of people employed by AXL receive priority admissions if their applications are completed and received by the designated deadline. These children may be enrolled regardless of the parent’s ongoing employment and will not exceed 20% of the school’s population. Employees’ children do not participate in the lottery.

Pre-Kindergarten: Beginning 2017-18, AXL’s Pre-Kindergarten will be a Colorado PreSchool Program (CPP). Families who qualify will pay no tuition for a half-day Pre-K program (M, T, Th., F). Pending available space for those who do not qualify for the CPP, tuition will be $350/month for a half-day Pre-K program (M, T, Th., F). There will be no Pre-K available on Wednesdays. The morning session is 8 am – 11 am and the afternoon session is 12 pm – 3pm. The program is open to students who turn 4 on or before October 1st of the school year in which they plan to enroll. The maximum enrollment for the morning session is 8 scholars. The maximum enrollment for the afternoon session is 16 scholars.

Our Pre-Kindergarten leader is a licensed ECE Director and is bilingual.
