Choice Enrollment in Colorado

Learn about your educational options!

A high-quality education is key to achieving the American dream. It lays the foundation for a thriving and more prosperous America by ensuring that the next generation is more prepared and more successful than the last. Educational freedom empowers families to choose the best educational choice for their students. It also drives entrepreneurial advances and improvement in education by giving students access to non-traditional options such as homeschooling, micro-schools, private schools, and other educational options.

Additionally, open enrollment provides a way for all students – but particularly low-income or disadvantaged – to access a high-quality education through traditional public and charter schools. This type of educational freedom allows students to thrive and schools to grow and innovate.
