The Process

William Smith High School is open to students living within the Aurora Public Schools attendance boundaries and in the Denver area through an application process. Enrollment is determined by a lottery system. Test scores, attendance data and student questions do not determine enrollment.

9th Grade

The application for the 2019-2020 school year will be available beginning December and will stay open through November 2019. The application will be available throughout the school year, but to be considered for the 9th grade lottery, applications MUST be in by Friday March 1, 2019.

Applications in after this deadline will automatically be placed on the waitlist.

For students applying for grades 10 and up, all applications are placed on a waitlist in order of application submittal. Acceptance for students in these grade levels are not guaranteed but based on student enrollment numbers for the current school year.

Upper Class Men

10th-12th grade spots are filled in July once we know how many spaces we have available in each grade. Families will be contacted in July and will come in for an informational meeting before the school year starts.

Please note that a NEW application must be filled out each year. 8th graders applying for the  9th grade will go through a lottery process which takes place in March.
