School of Choice Information
We always encourage families new to Fort Collins to complete a School of Choice application at our school. Because of continued growth and construction within our attendance area, we are limited in the number of students that we are able to accept from the School of Choice waiting list. We closely monitor our program capacity enrollment and notify families as soon as an enrollment slot opens for School of Choice students. We must operate within district guidelines and must adhere closely to our established program capacity enrollment. New students living within our attendance area and who wish to attend Fossil Ridge High School do not need to submit a School of Choice application. Neighborhood students are guaranteed an enrollment slot in our school regardless of our current enrollment capacity. If you wish to complete a School of Choice application, please visit the PSD web site or click the appropriate icon below.
