Out of District Open Enrollment Now Open
Posted on 02/21/2024

Welcome to the Appleton Area School District, an inclusive district nestled in the Fox Valley on the north end of Lake Winnebago.

We're excited to invite your family to join one of our many diverse school options, from 4K sites across our community, to our welcoming neighborhood schools throughout Appleton, to our 14 different, free, public charter schools with emphases on arts, STEM education, and college and career preparedness. Whatever you're looking for, we have it here in Appleton.

Wisconsin’s public school Out-of-District Open Enrollment program allows parents to apply for their children to attend a school district other than the one in which they live. Students, from 4K to grade 12, may apply. The Open Enrollment regular application period for the upcoming school year is open through April 30, 2024.

Families can learn more and apply here: www.dpi.wi.gov/open-enrollment
