Families wanting to enroll their child(ren) at Jefferson Academy will participate in EnrollJeffco (see steps below).  Those families that participated in First Round Choice Enrollment (December 10, 2019 - January 15, 2020) will be contacted late January with an offer for placement in next year's enrollment or where they are at on the wait list. Beginning January 21, families that did not participate in First Round Choice Enrollment may participate in Second Round Choice Enrollment. Student placed on the Second Round Choice Enrollment will be added to the bottom of the wait list. 

When a family is offered and has accepted a position for Kindergarten, they will need to supply a copy of birth certificate, immunization records and proof of residency (if applicable). 

Jefferson Academy’s Enrollment Priority List

  • Staff children
  • Siblings of current and returning students at Jefferson Academy
  • In-County First Round Open Enrollment
  • Out-of-County First Round Open Enrollment
  • Second Round Open Enrollment begins January 21, 2020. This is for families that did not participate in EnrollJeffco (First Round). Students in Second Round are placed at the bottom of the First Round lists.


We have four full-day classes and one half-day morning class. Children entering Kindergarten must be five years of age by October 1.  

Thanks to recent funding from the State of Colorado, Jeffco Public Schools was able to offer free full-day kindergarten at all elementary schools for the 2019-20 school year. 

The state will need to pass this in their budget again this next spring. If the state does not fund full-day Kindergarten there will be a fee. The proposed fee would be $3,000 for the year.  A deposit of $300 will be required when your child is enrolled. Should the state fund full-day Kindergarten, your deposit will be returned. 

1st Grade

Students entering 1st grade must be six years old by October 1.

Class Size

For the current school year, half-day Kindergarten – 20 students. Full-day Kindergarten – 22 students. Grades 1st through 6th grade vary from 26 – 28 students. Every classroom has an educational assistant working with the teacher five to seven hours each day.
