• Families who want to enroll their child in PreK-8th grade at Lincoln Academy rather than their neighborhood school must complete the Jeffco Choice Enrollment Process. Round 1 Enrollment is open December 5-January 12. Round 2 Enrollment opens on January 18 and stays open through August. Around January 23, Round 1 lottery offers will be sent to families. Families have three days to accept or decline an offer. If they accept an offer, they will be taken off their neighborhood or previous Jeffco school enrollment. Families will be given an option to remain on the waitlist for their other choice options, or get off other waitlists if they are satisfied with their first offer.

    • To enter PreK, children must be four years old on or before October 1.
