Schools Of Choice

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

The open enrollment period for the 2019-2020 is closed for the remainder of the year.
 

The open enrollment period for the 2020-2021 school year will be April 13 - May 15.  Applications and available openings will not be available until April 13.  To determine which form 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.
