School Choice & Open Enrollment

SchoolMint offers enrollment solutions that transform the family and staff experience in school districts that offer school choice programs, including open enrollment.

Customized for Your School Choice Process

Fulfilling the Promise of School Choice

As school options multiply, families across the country face a more complicated process to choose, apply, and enroll in public schools – whether a traditional district school, a magnet school, a charter school, or another school option in an increasing array of choices.

School districts across the country are looking for ways to improve and expand their school choice programs and to increase participation in those programs. High participation in choice programs requires easy, equitable access to information on high quality school options, a fair, transparent, and simple enrollment process, and a centralized data and reporting system to monitor demand – to name a few.

Comprehensive and Flexible Enrollment Solutions

We’ll build a fully integrated school choice enrollment management solution around your school district’s requirements, or we can configure individual modules as you need them:
