Open Enrollment

There is a different journey for every student – their potential as wide open as their possibilities. And, with every journey, there are new and exciting paths waiting to be taken, discoveries to be made, and abilities to be realized.

Welcome to PVSchools!

Are you interested in enrolling at a school outside of your neighborhood?

Begin the Journey of Excellence

Open Enrollment is a process allowing parents and guardians the ability to apply for admission to any public school, as long as there is classroom space available. Parents and guardians choose to open enroll their children in PVSchools for a variety of reasons, including the unique and innovative award-winning programs, teaching philosophy, extracurricular activities, and more.

Early Bird Open Enrollment registration for the 2023-24 school year begins on Sept. 1, 2022, and will end on Dec. 1, 2022. After early bird applications are processed, parents and guardians are notified of their application status through email before the 2022 winter break. 

Open Enrollment registration continues for the 2023-24 school year on Dec. 2, 2022. Students will be waitlisted if school and/or program capacity has been reached. Prioritized students will be selected off of the waitlist first. If there are more prioritized students than there are openings, a lottery will be implemented for those prioritized students. Those not selected will remain on the waitlist. If there are no prioritized students on the waitlist, students will be selected based on the date and time the application was submitted.

PVSchools uses current enrollment to determine each school’s student enrollment, projected growth, and available space. Priority enrollment is given to students currently enrolled in PVSchools, children of employees, siblings of students currently enrolled in PVSchools, resident pupils, students in foster care, and students who meet the definition of unaccompanied youth prescribed in the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act. If there are no prioritized enrollments, applications will be accepted by the submission date and time.
