Current Denver Public Schools’ Student: Middle School and High School Students

  • May 10th-June 4th Opt-In Window through Parent Portal: We know that many families in DPS may still have concerns surrounding Covid-19 and may want to continue a virtual schooling option for the next year.  Therefore, Denver Online is expanding it’s high school and adding a middle school.  Families can opt into these programs during the May 10th-June 4th time window through Parent Portal.  Opting into Denver Online through this process is a one year commitment.  Students will retain a spot at their previous school for the following year should they wish to go back to it in the fall of 2022.  Students who opt into the virtual middle school or high school option through this process will automatically be enrolled at Denver Online for the 2021-22 school year.  After June 4th, here is what to expect next!
  • Applying outside of the Opt-In Window: If a family misses the opt-in window stated above, a student may still apply for Denver Online using the Student Interest Application.  On the final pop-up page of the application, be sure to sign-up for a virtual enrollment meeting where the student and guardian will be meeting with one of our administrators to talk about the program.  For this option, however, a student will not retain a seat at their previous school and will need to reapply to that school should they ever wish to leave Denver Online.  (But we hope you don’t!  We think you’ll like it here! )

Current Out-of-District Student: Middle School and High School Students

  • For families who are not currently part of Denver Public Schools, the opt-in process listed above is not an option.  Therefore, students will need to complete the Student Interest Application here.  On the final pop-up page of the application, be sure to sign-up for a virtual enrollment meeting where the student and guardian will be meeting with one of our administrators to talk about the program.
