Attend our School
We gladly continue to accept applications for all grades K–8 at any time. Please contact the school for more information. We invite you to join our community of engaged learners.
Connect is a free public school open to any child who lives in California and will turn five before September 1 of the school year. There are no admission tests. We give priority to residents of the Redwood City School District. The application can be accessed electronically through the Connect SchoolMint.
At the conclusion of an open enrollment period, we conduct a public lottery to determine which students were admitted and to create our wait list.
We gladly accept additional applications to add to our wait list.
PLEASE NOTE: The enrollment process for Connect is separate from that of the Redwood City School District. You can find information about the district's process on the district's site.
Students currently enrolled at Connect are automatically offered a place in the next grade. We then fill available spaces in this order:
Children of Connect board members and staff
Siblings of continuing students enrolled at Connect for the same school year
Students who live in the Redwood City School District, in the order chosen during our lottery
Students from outside the district, in the order chosen during our lottery
