Open Enrollment

  • Family If you are not a resident within the Columbia Heights Public School district you may still be able to have your student(s) register in one of our schools.

    Minnesota Statute 124D.03 allows all Minnesota's public school students the opportunity to apply to attend a school outside of the student's home district by open enrolling. Families are encouraged to apply before January 15 of each year to have the best chance of being admitted to one of our schools.

Transportation options are sometimes available by contacting the schools transportation department. Please know that Open Enrollment applicants are accepted depending on space availability.
