Walled Lake District Wide Open House

Schools of Choice

Why Walled Lake Schools?

Because we serve every child, every day!

“Every Child, Every Day,” means vigilant collaboration with parents, staff and community, on behalf of our children. The WLCSD team is about reaching every child, connecting with them, meeting their varying academic and social-emotional needs, and encouraging and empowering them to reach their highest potential.

Schools of Choice Application and Resources

Walled Lake Consolidated Schools is a participant in Schools of Choice 105 on a ‘limited’ basis, limited meaning not all buildings and all grade levels will have openings. Typically we accept applications for grades K-10. Under Schools of Choice we may enroll students who are not residents of our district but still reside in one of the other 27 Oakland County school districts who meet the application guidelines

We are pleased to be able to offer a second Schools of Choice application window this spring for families in other Oakland county school districts wishing to attend a Walled Lake school beginning with the 2019-2020 school year. If you are interested (or know of someone who possibly missed our January application window) please fill out and submit your application. All 19 schools will be open for limited enrollment K-10.11th graders interested in the IB programme at Western are eligible as well, pending a curriculum audit by the IB coordinator, Dr. Ami Friedman.

 Note:  If you are currently a resident of the district but anticipate moving out of the district before school starts in August, it may be possible for your children to continue their education here the following years under Schools of Choice 105 if:

  • You will still be residing within one of the other 27 Oakland County school district boundaries.
  • The building and grade level you want is open for application.  (you may end up on a waiting list if a lottery is necessary)
  • Meet the application guidelines
  • Submit your application during the application period.

The application window will be Monday, May 20th through Friday, June 7th. Applications cannot be accepted before the window opens or after it closes.
