Admissions Policy

Options High School enrolls students during the first two weeks of each quarter. Following the conclusion of this open enrollment period, students should work individually with their school counselor or the Options High School staff to determine an alternate transition plan to Options High School.

All students planning to enroll at Options High School must have achieved freshman credit status. Students complete an application packet including enrollment forms, transcripts, and immunization records. Packets are available at the Options Office, 2015 Franklin St. Interested students or parents should contact the school at (360) 647-6871 for additional information.

All entering students must successfully complete an orientation. The Options staff believes that if a student and their family have a clear understanding of the school procedures and policies, the student has a good chance to be successful.

Out–of-District Applicants: Students must obtain a waiver of attendance from the home district and submit it to Bellingham Public Schools, 1306 Dupont Street, Bellingham, WA 98225.
