Re-Enrollment for Current Students

Students who currently attend Frontier Schools and plan to return for the 2023-24 school year are exempt from the admission lottery if they notify the school of their intent to return by January 15, 2023.


Due to limited space for the upcoming year, we ask each parent/guardian to fill out this online re-enrollment form completely. This application form is designed for students who are currently enrolled. Applications received unsigned, incomplete, or after the January 15, 2023 closing date may not be considered for the 2023-24 school year.

The Funding Community Responds to Frontier

Three years ago, Frontier Schools board of directors and administration began a

concentrated effort to expand their presence among foundations and

corporations that support advancements in education in Kansas City.

To date more than $1 million has been collectively contributed to Frontier largely

from local foundations and business firms, but also from national corporations.

This funding support is wide ranging from enhancing academic achievement,

technological upgrades, student health capabilities, arts initiatives, mental health

and social services, scholarships and mentoring programs.

Frontier Schools thanks these funding partners. A list of those foundations and corporations follows:
