Schools Of Choice


Enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year is closed.  We will not be accepting any new schools of choice students for this school year.

Lowell Area Schools participates in two schools of choice programs that are based on the school district in which a family currently lives.

To determine which application is correct for your family, see the guidelines below.  Along with your application you must provide two proofs of residency.  Completing the wrong form or not submitting two proofs of residency could jeopardize enrollment.  If we receive more applications than openings, a lottery drawing will be held.
