Enrollment Information: Any student in grades 5-12 is eligible to enroll at SDS. Because SDS is a public school, there is no cost for tuition. Just give us a call to schedule a time to tour the school and meet our staff. Bring in any of the following required materials to save time during the registration process:

  • A photocopy of complete Student Immunization Records.
  • A photocopy of the student’s birth certificate.
  • Academic Transcripts from all high schools previously attended. Sonoran Desert School will provide each student with a transcript request form or will request transcripts if supplied with a signed form.
  • A Withdrawal Form from the student’s last high school (if student attended within the last 6 months).

In addition, enrolling students need to complete the following forms provided by the school:

  • Arizona Residency Documentation Form (parent or guardian signature required)
  • A Student Information Form (parent or guardian signature required)
  • Acceptable Computer Use Policy Form (parent or guardian signature required)

Once enrolled, students will attend a short orientation and start their classes with one-on-one help from their teachers–all in the same day!
