Do you want to transfer schools next year? graphic with deadline


  • February 4, 2021

    Greetings from Orange County Schools:

    Discretionary Transfer and Admission applications will be available February 1-28, 2021.

    If your child is currently assigned to a school in the Orange County Schools and you prefer your child attend one of the following schools
    (Open School Options listed here), then you must complete a discretionary transfer admission application by February 28, 2021. 

    This application is for students who:

    • are, based on their legal address, assigned to a school within the Orange County Schools, and who
    • wish to enroll in a school other than their assigned school that is deemed "Open" for transfers (see “Open School” options here).  These options do not include Choice Transfer Schools or Programs.

    Students currently enrolled as an approved transfer are not required to reapply annually to the same school.

    Complete a Discretionary Transfer Application

    If you reside outside of the area served by the Orange County Schools a Discretionary Admissions Application must be submitted annually by the established deadline. 

    *Discretionary Transfer Application Notice: Students currently living in the Orange County Schools attendance zone will not be charged tuition if they are approved for a transfer to an Open School. 

    *Tuition is only charged for students whose permanent home is outside of the district.
