Enrollment Overview

Families who have toured the school will submit a registration application and $35 fee by the March 1 deadline. By the end of March, a lottery is run with priority given to children of our board and staff, returning students, siblings, and alumni, in that order. Those offered a spot are required by May 1 to submit a full application and a non-refundable deposit of one month’s tuition to secure the spot. Children who are registered after the First Round automatically go on the waitlist, unless spaces are available. In the first week of May, open positions are offered to children on the waitlist. Waitlists do not carry over from year to year. For families with students 4-5 years old, Steele is a member of the Denver Preschool Program (DPP) and Universal Preschool (UPK) Colorado. Both of these programs provide funds for your student the year before kindergarten.
