Lake County Schools has always believed that because each child is different, parents should have access to educational choices that meet their child’s unique needs. That’s why for years we have supported parents having a wide variety of options in our district including allowing their student to attend a neighborhood school, a traditional school outside their attendance boundaries with an approved zone waiver, virtual school, charter school, magnet school, dual enrollment programs, advanced placement and special programs such as our Health Sciences Collegiate Academy in south Lake County.
In Lake, the first Educational Choice (EC) Open Window for the 2020-2021 school year is February 3 to April 30, 2020. That’s when Lake County residents can choose a school and apply to attend. There will also be a second EC Open Window for applications in June 2020 for schools with capacity for any Florida resident, both in and out of Lake County. Until then, take a look at the information provided here and let us know if you have questions. The school year capacity list for 2020-2021 is below.
The School Mint Educational Portal will open in a new window.
