New Family Enrollment

In the Appleton Area School District, we aim to be a destination district for families seeking extensive and diverse school options, such as our 18 Appleton Community 4K sites located throughout our community, our welcoming and inclusive neighborhood schools, and our 14 free, public charter schools each with a different emphasis such as the arts, manufacturing, the environment, STEM education, and college and career preparedness.

Whatever you're looking for, we have it here in Appleton!
When new families move into the District, we ask that you enroll your child(ren) as soon as possible. Prompt enrollment allows us to properly schedule buses, assign teachers, and provide any other services that might be necessary.

The Appleton Area School District requires enrollment for new students,4K through grade 12, and annual registration for existing students, kindergarten through grade 12.
