Group of graduating students

For the 2022-23 school year, our goal is for all registration to occur online as much as possible. If you already filled out your Annual Family Update/Early Bird Registration in May, you can scroll down to Step Three to pay your fees, beginning in mid-August.

If your student has been accepted to Northfield High School, please see below for registration instructions. If you would like your student to attend Northfield High School, please verify that they meet residency requirements by checking Denver Public Schools – you can enter your address to verify your neighborhood school. If we are your neighborhood school and you have chosen a different school and want to return to Northfield, you must complete a School Choice application. If Northfield is not your neighborhood school and you would like to be added to our waitlist, you may participate in Round 2 of choice through the School Choice website. Please do not attempt to complete any of the registration forms below for Northfield High School if you are not in our boundary or have not been accepted to our school through the School Choice process. If you have any questions, you may reach out to our Registrar, Edith Zapata, 720-423-8195.
