Open Enrollment Application

If you live outside of the Hopkins School District boundary and would like your child to attend one of our schools — we welcome you to open enroll!

The first step to open enrolling into Hopkins Public Schools is to complete an Open Enrollment Application. You can complete the Open Enrollment Application online (below), download a pdf copy, or stop into our district enrollment center or schools and pick up a form.

For the current school year, you may still apply for open enrollment; however, there are wait lists for many of our schools. Waitlists are reviewed throughout the school year and you will be contacted if a space opens. 

Please note: Families of open enrolled students generally provide their own school transportation. There is no tuition charged for open enrollment.

The 2023-24 application deadline has passed but we welcome you to apply

Although the Jan. 17 deadline for the 2023-24 school year has passed, we welcome you to submit an application for open enrollment as soon as possible. Your application will be added to our wait list after the first round of placement offers have been confirmed. The earlier you submit an application, the higher you will be placed on the wait list. You can expect to hear from us about your spot on the wait list in early March.

I applied by the Jan. 17 deadline, when will I hear about placement?

If you submitted an application by the Jan. 17  deadline, we are processing applications at this time. You can expect to hear from us with placement offers by Feb. 15. Please watch your email and confirm your placement offer by March. 1, 2023. To confirm your placement, reply to the email you receive. It is very important to confirm your placement by March 1.
