Marquette Area Public Schools announces School of Choice openings for non-residents in grades K-12 for the 1st semester of the 2024-2025 school year.  Application forms may be obtained at any MAPS school building, at the Superintendent's office, or downloaded from the MAPS website. Completed application forms will be accepted through Friday, August 30, 2024.

Students must reside within the Marquette-Alger RESA to be eligible for School of Choice at MAPS.

Families Moving to Area

If you are moving to the area but do not yet have a Marquette resident address, please wait until you have a Marquette resident address to complete this online enrollment application.

Kindergarten/Junior Kindergarten Age Requirement

If you are registering for kindergarten, please note that according to Michigan Law (MCL 380.1447) children are required to be five years old on or before December 1 of the school calendar year in which the child attends school to attend kindergarten. This minimum age requirement is the same for entering junior kindergarten as it is for entering kindergarten.  You will need to complete a Kindergarten Waiver Request if your child is not five years of age on September 1, but will be five years of age not later than December 1 of the school year you are enrolling in.

Kindergarten Registration

This is an application only. Enrollment will not be complete until the required documents have been submitted.

If your child is currently attending ECSE or junior kindergarten at MAPS, you do not need to enroll in kindergarten as you are already registered. 

Children who are in the ECSE or junior kindergarten programs are enrolled in kindergarten in their resident school.  If you wish to request a building other than your resident school, please fill out an In-District Transfer Request by May 17, 2024.  Non-resident school of choice children who are attending junior kindergarten will be placed in one of our four buildings for kindergarten based on availability.  If you wish to request a building, please fill out a Building Transfer Request (for Non-Resident Pupils) by May 17, 2024.
