Enroll in One City Expeditionary Elementary School

Our formal enrollment period for the 2021-22 school year will begin on Monday, March 1, 2021. Applications will be accepted for grades 4K, Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade and 4th grade.
We are now enrolling students on a first-come, first-serve basis for grades 2, 3 and 4 for the 2021-22 school year. See below. Currently, all seats in our 4K, 5K and 1st grades have been filled. However, we are encouraging families that are interested in enrolling their child(ren) in our 4K, 5K and 1st grades to complete an application anyway.

As a public charter school authorized by the University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents and supported by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, our elementary school is tuition-free (however, moderate school fees do apply).

Attendance Boundary: Additionally, any family residing anywhere in Wisconsin with children age 4 years old and up by September 1 each school year can enroll in OCEES.
