Prospective Students

Enrollment

Please spend some time learning about us at the "about us link" before pursuing enrollment.
North Star enrollment is a multi-step process. It is dependent on openings and the determination that learning at home in collaboration with North Star is a good fit for your family. 

We begin the enrollment process by gathering the necessary information to place your student on our interest list. If we have no openings, your student will be placed on a waiting list, which gives no guarantee of enrollment, or a timeline for enrollment. We evaluate openings on a rolling basis.  

Steps to Enrollment

  2. Complete the MLO INTEREST FORM 24-25 to provide contact information for us to move forward.
  3. Your family will receive an invitation to  participate in an enrollment Interview and information gathering session. Depending on the timeframe, this may be done in small groups of families or individually.
  4. If enrollment is approved, families may begin completing the necessary paperwork and start investigating curriculum.
