Application Process

  • Admissions

    Thank you for your interest in Kent Phoenix Academy! We are a small, choice school providing high school students and their families with an option in education. We are located in the Kent School District serving high school students in grades 9-12. Students and parents must apply and attend an orientation session to be considered for enrollment.

    Applications are accepted in the spring for the following school year, and again in the winter for the start of the second semester in January. You may be placed on a wait-list if your program is at capacity.


    We are home to two programs to meet the needs of our students and their families.

    1. Kent Performance Learning Center
    2. Kent Virtual High School

    Application Process

    Step One: Submit an Application

    Applications are available online. All documents requested must be submitted to the school before the application is complete.

    Return your completed application in one of three ways:

    1. Email your application to
    2. Fax your application to (253) 373-7554.

    The last day student applications will be accepted for consideration for the current 2019-2020 school year is Friday, February 7, 2020. Applications submitted after February 7 will be considered for the 2020-2021 school year. 

    Step Two: Expect Notification of Admission Decision

    All families who apply will be notified by May 31 if your student is admitted for the 2020-2021 school year. Placement is not based on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications are accepted March 1 through April 30.

    Step Four: Complete Enrollment Forms Once Accepted for the 2020-2021 School Year

    Upon acceptance, all enrollment forms should be completed within 7 days to secure your student's place. If out-of-district, an Inter-district Transfer Form available from your district of residence is required to be submitted to the Kent School District before a student will be enrolled.


    If you have questions about our programs or how to apply, please contact our enrollment specialist at or (253) 373-6886.

    To appeal an enrollment decision, the parent/guardian must notify in writing, the Executive Director of Student Support Services or designee. Appeals can only be initiated when the transfer denial is for reasons other than space availability. A district administrative team will review the decision and respond to the parent/guardian in writing. Appeals from decisions under this procedure will be in accordance with RCW 28A.645 to the extent applicable.
