Thank you for your interest in Loveland Classical Schools!

We begin enrolling for the next school year the first day back after Thanksgiving break (starting with siblings). The LCS Lottery Team will continue to fill openings for the school year as fluctuation occurs throughout the spring and summer. Please be patient during this process. Due to the 48 hours allotted for acceptance and one week time period allotted for families to return enrollment paperwork, notifications will be made as quickly as possible.

Enrollment Process:

  1. The school enrolls students in the highest grades first and progresses to the lower grades.
  2. LCS pulls entire families. For example, if your oldest student is chosen, any siblings will be offered open spots or will be moved to the sibling waitlist until an opening becomes available. (Note: siblings receive spots before other students in the general lottery.)
  3. LCS gives families 48 hours to make a decision and respond to the school regarding their acceptance. The family will then be required to complete all enrollment paperwork (sent to the parent/guardian email address on file) for each accepted child within one week.
  4.  Once all steps are completed, families will receive Thompson School District’s acceptance letter to confirm enrollment.

Parent Process:

  1. Attend an information meeting to learn more about Loveland Classical Schools (LCS prioritizes families that have attended this meeting).
  2. Fill out an Online Lottery Form.
  3. Complete Thompson School District’s 2019-2020 Open Enrollment Application (you may have completed this step already, if so please do not submit again).
  4. Once your family has been drawn in the lottery, LCS will email you an official student position offer. Click on the links in the attached document and complete the enrollment instructions.

LCS does its primary enrollment during the district's open enrollment period, which is typically the end of November to mid-January. However, we do continue to enroll throughout the spring, summer and first semester. We will make enrollment calls monthly as we find out about any upcoming openings.
Knowledge is power. Please come to any monthly open houses, join our Facebook page, and update the school with your contact information as they change. Take a look at our website and read about the Core Knowledge curriculum (Singapore Math and RIGGS English programs), the mission and vision of the school, and the LCS Student Handbook. Also, take a look at the dress code and review what is allowed.
As long as the students are not involved in state testing, parents and students are welcomed to observe classes. Contact for information on availability and the student observation procedures. Parents are also welcome to get to know our teachers by volunteering even before their children begin attending.
