Who can enroll at C3?

C3 is an open-enrollment school with no entry requirements, which means anyone can enroll in C3 through the Denver SchoolChoice process. In the event there are more students interested than available spaces, the students who are matched with C3 will be determined by a lottery that takes into account C3’s enrollment priorities, listed below.

Please note that C3’s enrollment process is the exact same system all other DPS schools use. There is not a special application or process to enroll in C3. First-round choice opens mid-January and runs until mid-February through DPS.

Priority Enrollment:

  1. Children of staff members
  2. Siblings of current C3 students
  3. Students that qualify for free and reduced lunch from the district OR whose school attendance boundary is a Priority Zone School: Ellis, Steele, Cory
  4. Denver residents
  5. Families outside of Denver
