Admissions Process


Welcome to Twin Peaks Charter Academy. We are a public school of choice in the St. Vrain Valley School District. Our K–12 campus is conveniently located in the center of Longmont, Colorado. We pair a rigorous, content-rich curriculum with character education to help our students achieve the highest standards in academics and ethics.  

Everyone who wishes to attend TPCA must submit an application for enrollment and visit the school, or submit an annual re-enrollment form. New applications are processed according to our admissions policies to ensure an equal opportunity for every student. We offer two general processes to submit an application to our school.

Admission Process 1(December 1 through January 17)

This is the initial enrollment period for new students for the following school year. Please submit an enrollment application for each student, between December 1 and January 17 and register your attendance at an enrollment meeting.  This process earns your student(s) an entry in the initial random sort to be held on January 20. The list generated from the random sort is used first to offer opens seats by grade level. This application time frame is aligned with the SVVSD's Open Enrollment window.

Admission Process 2 (Other Times of the Year)

Please submit an enrollment application for each student, and register your attendance at an informational tour. This is our secondary admissions process. It is used to offer open seats by grade level after offers have been extended to those in the random sort (see above), and as new openings become available throughout the first semester of the school year.  Please call the school Registrar about the current openings at each grade level.


New Students and Families

Enrollment for the Current School Year and Student Transfers

Once school is in session, we have the flexibility to offer enrollment opportunities as they become available. Our best practices for academic and character education permit transfers only through the end of Quarter 2, or Semester 1. If you are interested in enrollment for this school year, and if we are currently operating in Semester 1, please contact the school registrar. If we are unable to offer your student enrollment before the end of Semester 1, please follow the instructions for Enrollment for the Next School Year.

Enrollment for the Next School Year

We welcome all prospective families to learn more about our school through our campus tours and enrollment meetings, and shadow opportunities for grades 6–12. All applicants must register their visit and submit an application form to be eligible for enrollment.

Please see the Arrange a Visit page.


Our Enrollment Process

Process 1 – December through January 17

All eligible applications will be randomly sorted within each grade level. This list will be called the “Waiting List,” and it will be used to offer open seats by grade level.

We will contact a parent or guardian by phone or email to offer your student an enrollment opportunity and give you time to respond with your decision. We may continue to use the Waiting List to offer open seats throughout the summer and fall as they become available. Please contact our registrars at any time to receive an update on current openings and your student's status for an offer.

Process 2 – Other Times of the Year

Applications received after the annual random sort in January will be added to the Waiting List in the order they are received. Once parents have completed an informational tour, their student(s) will be eligible for an offer of enrollment.

Kindergarten Eligibility

Kindergarten applicants must be five years old on or before October 1 of the school year for which they wish to apply, according to the Colorado Department of Education. To learn more about our Kinder Team, and what to expect during this special introduction to TPCA, please visit our Kindergarten page.


Returning Students and New Siblings

We invite current parents to provide a Re-enrollment Form during the month of December. We rely on our current families to share their re-enrollment information in a timely manner so that we may proceed with offering enrollment to new families, starting in early January.

To enroll new Kindergarten - 12th grade siblings of currently enrolled students, please provide an on-line enrollment application. For more information, please inquire at the either school office. Thank you for your continued support of Twin Peaks Charter Academy.
