How to Apply

The first step to enroll in any MNPS school is to register your child for an ID number. To do so you can bring parent ID, proof of residence (recent utility bill), and your child’s birth certificate to our school or any other MNPS enrollment center.

Next, you will need to complete the MNPS Optional Schools Application and rank Explore! Community School as your number one option. Please note that geographic preference is only given to residents who applied before the first MNPS Optional Schools deadline. We have paper applications available at Explore and are happy to help you complete them.

If you have any questions, please fill out the form below or give us a call at (615) 784-8222.
