We welcome students from throughout the Kansas City Public Schools district in Kansas City, Missouri, to our public charter school. On these pages, you will find a link to our online application, read our policies regarding age, siblings and residency, and learn how and when to apply. Because there are typically more applicants than places available, a lottery system is used to generate a random list for the incoming kindergarten class, admitting 198 new students per year.
Using an Académie Lafayette application or a Common Application, families can apply during an open admission window every year.
Discover guidelines for admission, including age and residency requirements, the lottery system, and the open enrollment period.
Get ready for another year at Académie Lafayette! For current students, re‑enrollment is done through the SchoolMint site.
From incoming kindergarteners through middle schoolers, free and fun summer school programs are available, also through SchoolMint.
It’s impossible to capture the energy and vitality of the students and staff at Académie Lafayette within the pages of a brochure, but we tried. Download our school brochure here to learn the basics about AL and see fun photography of our Musketeers in action.
All tours have been cancelled due to health concerns for all involved.
Since all school buildings are closed and students are learning at home, we would like to provide online information sessions about Académie Lafayette and to answer your questions.
All sessions are 30 min. Please email Robyn King at email@example.com to schedule a different time, send in additional questions, or to meet by phone.
The information will be an overview of both campuses. If you would like to know more about the Cherry Campus, please contact Diane Balagna at dbalagna@academielafayette.
