As in previous years, our school board has chosen to participate in the Winooski Valley Regional Public School Choice Collaborative for 2024-2025. Through this program and the state school choice program, students may apply to go to any public high school in Vermont at no cost.

Students are chosen by lottery from all the applicants for each school district based on the number of open slots. You may view school choice information at the Vermont Agency of Education website,
