Please contact the school office at info@augustineclassical.org to set up a tour.  You can also call (720) 446-6286 to set up a K-12 tour, or (303) 233-3531 to set up a Preschool tour at either our Lakewood or Edgewater locations.

Step Two: Complete Paperwork

Please complete the following forms in the registration packet and return to the office prior to your enrollment date. The registration packet can be picked up at the school, printed on-line, or we can mail you a copy. Please note, we are unable to accept incomplete paperwork.

The family or parent interview is a vital part of the admissions process. Once all paperwork and testing is complete, we meet with both parents (and students applying to 7th Grade and up). The interview provides a time for us to get to know one another more personally and for you to ask questions.

  • Tuition Deposit: $450 for K-12 families, $250 for Preschool & Pre-K families

All families are required to make tuition payments through FACTS management services.  Those with payment plans (except payment in full) will incur an annual fee of $43. To set up a FACTS account, please click the button below.

PLEASE NOTE: Parents of current K-12 students: you will be receiving a re-enrollment contract by February of each year. Please do not fill out the application available below. (But also note: Preschool families must fill out a new enrollment application each year before entering Kindergarten.)
