Application Process

As a public charter school, the Kauffman School is free and open to all students residing within the district boundaries of the KCPS. The Kauffman School begins with fifth grade and that is the age at which the school will accept enrollments. In the event there are more applications than seats; the school will use a lottery process to give every applicant an equal chance of admission.

The Kauffman School will provide a geographical enrollment preference to students living in six zip codes:  64123, 64124, 64127, 64128, 64130, and 64132.
