    Please feel free to call the principal of the school(s) involved for a tour. We can arrange a time when other students and faculty are present or a quiet time when few will be around.

  2. Speak to other Open Enrollment Parents.
    We can provide names of parents of students who will be in your child(ren)’s activities or grades to compare notes.

  3. Apply Early.
    By applying early, you will have a better chance of being accepted and not being closed out of the grade you need. If you are offered enrollment, there is no obligation to accept. Should they choose, students may return to their home school at any time. 

There are several family-friendly policies in place to help avoid potential problems later.

  1. If older siblings are enrolled in Pettisville, when the younger siblings come of school age, they are guaranteed not to be denied entrance due to class size.

  2. Once we accept a child, we will not later deny renewal because of class size.
