The second open enrollment is currently opened through January 30, 2020. If you withdraw your child after January 30, 2020, you may re-enroll until SY 2020-2021. NO EXCEPTIONS. This policy is created in the best interest of your child in order to have the opportunity for academic success. Student performance reporting is necessary to ensure proper academic advancement.

FIRST PRIORITY of enrollment at DCGS will be given to students who had excellent attendance and positive behavior from the previous school year. Former and current students who have been on attendance or behavior contracts will be placed on a waiting list or may not be considered for enrollment. Upon acceptance, a behavioral and/or attendance contract will be required for the next school year.

Kindergartners must be five (5) years old by the first Friday in November to enroll for the current school year. Kindergarten students are not eligible to enroll in the Residential Program. This does not apply to students with a Social Services order/ Court order.

Withdrawals must be initiated by the parent or guardian through the registrar's office. The school strongly discourages parents from a pattern of enrolling, withdrawing, and re-enrolling students.

All new students and those enrolling at the start and/or middle of the school year are REQUIRED to take an academic assessment to determine their grade-level performance. If the student is more than two years below their grade level based on the assessment results, the possibility of retention will be applied (Parent must sign the New Enrollment Agreement form).
