How to Enroll
STRIVE Prep welcomes any student from kindergarten through 12th grade who desires to STRIVE for college. Interested families must participate in the DPS SchoolChoice Enrollment process which looks at specific criteria, such as home address, to prioritize students for STRIVE Prep schools.
We work closely with DPS to make every attempt to accommodate all families, particularly those with siblings who apply together in the same school year. Families should submit a separate SchoolChoice Form for each sibling considering enrollment.
STRIVE Prep accepts students any time of the year as our openings allow!
