KIPP Northeast Denver Leadership Academy (KNDLA) enrolls all students through Denver Public Schools' School Choice enrollment process. This means that students are admitted to our school based on a lottery system that accounts for student/family school preferences until the enrollment capacity is reached.

Round One of School Choice for the 2018-19 school year is February 1– 28, 2018Any student who is interested in attending KNDLA must complete and submit a DPS School Choice enrollment form. You can find more information on DPS’ process and begin the enrollment process here

Once the student’s enrollment form is enrolled, a teacher will contact the student to schedule a home visit, at which time the teacher will discuss with the student and parents/guardians the Commitment to Excellence.

Please keep in mind that  KIPP Northeast Denver Leadership Academy has the most available seats for new students in ninth grade. However, KNDLA does take in a small number of students in later grades.
