Applications for next year are coming soon!

On January 24, 2022, The Juniper School will open the lottery process for the 2022 - 2023 school year. Applications will be accepted through the month of February.


Enrollment in charter schools is available to all students, including students with disabilities, and information about disabilities will not be requested until a student has been admitted and enrolled in a charter school.  For questions regarding the admission and enrollment of students with disabilities in charter schools, you may contact Vanessa Giddings, Executive Director of Student Support Services for Durango School District 9-R or Philip Werline, Head of School.





Please contact Cindy, our Front Office Manager at Juniperfrontoffice@gmail.com  or by phone at 970-764-4185


Did you know that students who are economically disadvantaged and eligible for free or reduced cost lunch, are English Language Learners or are experiencing homelessness have a greater chance of getting a seat in our lottery?

If your student fits into one of these categories, they will have 3 entries in the lottery, which gives them 3 times the chance of their number being drawn for a seat. The Juniper School has made a commitment to give students who are facing greater challenges a greater chance to have a high quality charter school education.

This year has been challenging for educators and students around the world. In normal years we would welcome families who are interested in Juniper into our classrooms to observe. This year, due to the pandemic, that's not possible. We are proud of the way our teachers and staff have handled the challenges of remote learning and altered in-person learning, and we would like to share some lessons prepared and used this year.

Our counselor, Miss Kaitlyn, developed a virtual Calm Down Room to support and connect with students during remote learning. Check it out
