Discover Highline Academy!
Highline Academy participates in the Denver Public Schools (DPS) SchoolChoice process. Our admissions window ends on October 1st depending on available space. We will call from our waitlist throughout the summer to fill available seats. We do not accept students for enrollment after October 1st. Please see the Highline 2018-19 brochure – this gives a great overview of what Highline is all about! Please also review our Commonly Asked Questions brochure here: FAQ 2018
DPS believes all students should have the same access to quality schools, regardless of their background or where they live in Denver. Any DPS student who wants to attend a school other than their automatically assigned neighborhood school can take part in SchoolChoice. (To determine your neighborhood school, go to schoolfinder.dpsk12.org).
- Families submit one ONLINE SchoolChoice application per student, on which they rank their students’ top five school preferences.
- Please go to https://dps.schoolmint.net/signin to access the online application. Paper applications will not be available this year. You can upload all required documentation on this website, so there is no need to bring in any paperwork to the school.
- You must create a SchoolChoice account or use an existing DPS Parent Portal log-in to begin your application.
- DPS then matches students to schools based on those preferences, as well as school admission priorities and available space.
Prospective students (in the 5th grade and higher) are invited to shadow our student ambassadors on Tuesday and Thursdays from 7:50am -3:30pm starting in late October. Shadow dates will fill up fast! Please email Heather Knight, the Director of Operations, at firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate a day to meet your student’s schedule.
We offer prospective parents the opportunity to tour Highline while classes are in session. All tours begin at 9am with a short introduction from our administrative team and will follow with small group tours focusing on either Elementary or Middle School.
