Since our first year, Galapagos Rockford Charter School has increased in size every year.  Many of our grade levels are in high demand, especially kindergarten.  Galapagos Rockford Charter School has a limited number of spots for new scholars.  In order to be considered for a spot, please fill out a scholar application.  You may complete an application online.  You may also visit either of our campuses and fill out an application in person.  The application process takes approximately five minutes.  Please fill out an application for your child or children today. We would love the opportunity to serve your family by giving your child an excellent, college-prep elementary experience!  

Galapagos is open to all residents who live within the city of Rockford and any other area served by the district.  Children applying for a 2021-22 kindergarten spot must be five by August 29, 2021.
