Will you have a K-8 student you’d like to attend BFA for the 2021-22 school year? Do you have a relative, neighbor or friend who will?
DCSD’s online Open Enrollment is NOW OPEN!
Parents of ALL prospective K-8 students, including siblings of current BFA K-8 students and BFA preschool students, must complete Open Enrollment during First Round to earn a priority status.
Open Enrollment submissions during the FIRST ROUND ONLY will have priority based on the following:
  • Children in the household of Founding Families;
  • Siblings of current BFA students. Siblings that share the same birth date (ie. twins or triplets) shall receive automatic enrollment; and
  • Children of full-time teachers;
  • BFA preschool students, as detailed in the Enrollment Policy.
IMPORTANT: Parents with students who have the above priorities who miss First Round of Open Enrollment and complete it during Second Round will NOT receive priority enrollment. To leverage priority status, please complete Open Enrollment during First Round.
Visit the DCSD Open Enrollment webpage before November for the most up-to-date information, step by step instructions, as well as answers to commonly-asked questions. After reviewing this information, if you have questions about enrollment, please email our registrar, Colleen Bobbin.
