KM Explore Application Process

    Our initial application window is now closed for the 2019-20 school year.  Applications for the 2020-2021 school year will be available February 1, 2020. 

    The initial application window runs from February 1 through February 28, 2020 at 12PM.  A lottery will be held to fill open spots and create a waiting list for certain grade levels if necessary. Applications received after the February 28, 12PM deadline will be placed on the waiting list on a first come, first served basis in the order in which they are received.  

    **Please note, if you are applying to the Kettle Moraine School District through the Open Enrollment process and would like to be on the waiting list for KM Explore, you also must fill out an application specific to our school.
