How is Prenda tuition-free? Tuition-free microschools in Colorado are made available through our partnership with Education reEnvisioned BOCES. Prenda is considered a homeschool enrichment program in Colorado, although students are receiving a complete K-8 education experience.
When can I enroll my child? The last day you can submit an enrollment form for the school year is September 15th. All students in Colorado will need to start school by September 22nd. If you've missed the deadline for this school year please fill out a request for information form to be notified when enrollment open for the following school year.
2022-2023 Student Enrollment
Follow the simple steps below to enroll your child(ren) via Prenda's enrollment portal.
1. Create an account in Prenda’s enrollment portal
2. Add a student profile for each student (NEW students only)
If your child was enrolled last year, you'll be able to select their name, unless you miss the August 31st deadline for returning students. If enrolling after the returning student deadline, you'll add their name as a new student to Prenda.
3. Confirm whether your child is new or returning to Prenda
4. Select your program and funding source
Program: Prenda Microschool or Prenda Familyschool. Funding Source: Education reEnvisioned BOCES.
5. Choose your microschool
You can choose a microschool later if you don't have one picked out yet. Once you find a microschool, ask your Guide for their Guide code to register.
6. Submit the online enrollment form and upload documents
Be sure to have all of your student’s documents ready! We’ll let you know via email when your registration is complete, or if we need any additional information. Typically, it takes 1-2 weeks to process and finalize.
When can I select a microschool? You can start exploring the microschool map whenever you’d like. You’ll receive a link to the map via email after you start the enrollment process or by filling out the request for information form. Microschools are added to the map regularly, so we encourage parents to check it often. Still, you don't need to have selected a microschool to get started on enrollment.
When will school start? Microschools will open for learning in the fall between August 1, 2022 and September 22, 2022. Each Prenda Guide sets their own first day of school, so this is a great question to ask as you are connecting with Guides.
Do I need to complete a separate enrollment form for each of my children? Yes, but you will only need to create one account in the enrollment portal. You’ll add basic information and upload documents for each child you are enrolling.
What documents will I need for enrollment? In addition to submitting the documents below, you will need to submit an intent to homeschool form to your district of residence 14 days before the start of the homeschool enrichment program.
- Prenda Enrollment Form
- Child’s proof of age, such as a state-issued birth certificate
- Proof of residence, such as a utility bill
- Immunization records, medical exemption form, or non-medical exemption form
- Custody documentation, if applicable
What is the cut-off date for Kindergarten? Kindergarten students must turn five before August 31 of the current school year in order to be enrolled in Prenda.
