Preschool students must be 3 years old by Oct. 1 and must possess independent toileting skills.

Apply for Preschool

  • All families who would like their child to attend preschool must apply for a Pre-K spot on the UPK Colorado website. Applications are accepted for 4-year-olds and 3-year-olds with an Individualized Education Plan (IEP).

  • For three-year-olds without an IEP, you may fill out Academy District 20's Preschool Application for 3-Year-Olds (available on the side-bar of this page.) Openings for these students are limited and tuition is $260 per month (some schools may have additional fees).

Accept your Match/Placement

If you applied for preschool via UPK Colorado, accept the match that UPK Colorado provides:

  • When your child has been matched to our preschool program, you will need to accept the match offer.

  • The matching process considers spaces available, living in the district, returning students, and other factors.

  • This process may take up to four weeks to ensure the best fit for your child.

If you applied for preschool via Academy District 20:

  • If your student is accepted, an email will be sent to you containing more specific information and next steps.

Register Your Student

  • Once you receive notification from the State of Colorado that your application has been accepted, or you receive an acceptance email from Academy District 20, you'll need to register your child with Academy District 20 within two weeks.

  • An overview and a link for the registration process are available on our Registration page.

  • This process may take up to 4-6 weeks.
