KIPP Northeast Denver Leadership Academy (KNDLA) enrolls all students through Denver Public Schools' School Choice enrollment process. This means that students are admitted to our school based on a lottery system that accounts for student/family school preferences until the enrollment capacity is reached.

Round One for the 2017-18 school year is January 5 – January 31, 2017Round two forms will be available in March 2017. Any student who is interested in attending KMCHS must complete and submit a DPS School Choice enrollment form to the school office or to DPS directly. You can find more information on DPS’ process and download the School Choice form here

Once you have completed the School Choice enrollment form, you must return it in person to your requested school or to DPS directly by January 31, 2017.

Once the student’s enrollment form is enrolled, a teacher will contact the student to schedule a home visit, at which time the teacher will discuss with the student and parents/guardians the Commitment to Excellence.

Please keep in mind that  KIPP Northeast Denver Leadership Academy has the most available seats for new students in ninth grade. However, KNDLA does take in a small number of students in later grades.
