  • Enrollment Window One begins October 1 and ends November 12. Students will be notified by the end of the first full week in December.
  • Enrollment Window Two begins November 15 and ends the first Friday following winter break. Students will be notified by the second Friday of the second semester.
  • Goddard will be notifying open enrollment applicants electronically.  Please check your email.

  • District residents have priority consideration over nonresidents.
  • Space available at student’s grade level.
