K-8 Enrollment

Enrollment at Ben Franklin Academy (BFA) for the 2019-20 school year has changed. BFA is no longer using our previous wait list to enroll students, but will use Douglas County School District’s (DCSD) Open Enrollment process. The first round of Open Enrollment begins at 8 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 1. Please visit DCSD’s Open Enrollment page for more information, important dates and deadlines, as well as answers to commonly asked questions.

New Students

Prospective K-8 students and current BFA families with siblings (K-8) who will be new to BFA, need to take action. Please go to the DCSD Open Enrollment webpage and follow the instructions and the timeline outlined on the page. EVERY prospective or new K-8 student must complete the DCSD Open Enrollment process.

If you currently have a K-8 student enrolled at BFA and would like to enroll a new K-8 sibling, please complete the process as detailed on the DCSD Open Enrollment page.

If you have a current BFA preschool student and would like to enroll in BFA’s Kindergarten, please complete the DCSD Open Enrollment process before the first round of Open Enrollment ends.

If you are applying for Kindergarten, your child MUST turn five by Oct. 1 of the enrollment year. For example, if your student will be five by Oct. 1, 2019, they can apply for the 2019-20 school year.

Current BFA Students

Current K-8 students intending to return to BFA next school year DO NOT need to take any action. If your student will not return to BFA next year, please let the registrar know via email.

Preschool Students

Enrollment for BFA preschool students will take place via the preschool webpage on the BFA website. Enrollment for current BFA families will begin at 9 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 3. Enrollment for the general public will begin at 9 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 14.
