We welcome students from throughout the Kansas City Public Schools district in Kansas City, Missouri, to our public charter school. On these pages, you will find a link to our online application, read our policies regarding age, siblings and residency, and learn how and when to apply. Because there are typically more applicants than places available, a lottery system is used to generate a random list for the incoming kindergarten class, admitting 120 new students per year.

How to Apply

Using an Académie Lafayette application or a Common Application, families can apply during an open admission window every year.


Discover guidelines for admission, including age and residency requirements, the lottery system, and the open enrollment period.


Get ready for another year at Académie Lafayette! For current students, re‑enrollment is done through the SchoolMint site.

Summer School

From incoming kindergarteners through middle schoolers, free and fun summer school programs are available, also through SchoolMint.

Get to Know Us

It’s impossible to capture the energy and vitality of the students and staff at Académie Lafayette within the pages of a brochure, but we tried. Download our school brochure here to learn the basics about AL and see fun photography of our Musketeers in action.
