    Enrollment Open for 2022-2023

    The new Kent School District (KSD) virtual school (yet to be named) will offer a decidedly flexible option for grades 6-12 in the 2022-2023 school year. Enrollment is now available to current and prospective families online.

    All Learners Are Welcome

    All students are welcome at the virtual school. If a student is served on an IEP, has a 504 plan, is designated HiCap, or is in need of English Language services, then staffing to serve them will follow their enrollment. Students who require significant services not offered at the virtual school will have decisions made through the IEP process as prescribed in law.

    Space is Limited to 600 Students

    Virtual school enrollment will remain open until we reach the limit of 600 total students or the first day of school in August 2022 – whichever comes first. At this time, space is not limited by grade level. If that changes or if a waitlist is needed, students who reside in the Kent School District boundary will be prioritized for enrollment.

    Class Registration Coming Soon

    A complete list of course offerings is being developed for the 2022-2023 school year. We expect to offer all core and elective classes required for students to graduate at the virtual school or in partnership with each student’s boundary school. A student who takes classes at both the virtual school and their boundary school at the same time is considered cross-enrolled. More information and individualized class registration support will be available to enrolled virtual school students this summer.
