We are so excited for the 2021-2022 school year.  In order for you to be a part of the excitement of rigorous courses, renovated facilities, and a family atmosphere, you need to complete the registration steps below by May 21st (Early Bird Registration). Your next opportunity to complete registration will not begin until July 26th so please complete this early. We have moved our registration process online this year to ensure the safety of all Commanders, as well as to save time, money, and resources.  

If you have questions please contact Gloria Diaz at 720-423-4332 or email to schedule an appointment.  

If for some reason, you will not be attending John F. Kennedy High School next year, please email with your student name and their new school so that we can offer your seat to someone on our waitlist. 

Early Bird Registration is Open!

April 26th - May 21st

All New and Returning Students Must Complete Registration

Free and Reduced Lunch Application (Required)

All students must apply or opt out, one application per family is required to complete the registration process. If you know you do not qualify, you do not need to fill out the entire application and you can simply check the opt out option.

This can impact how your student is charged for bus passes and can reduce your registration fee. Failure to do so will result in an incomplete registration and may impact your student being charged for lunch and affect AP Exam fees and Sports fees. If you missed this step, please visit to apply. MAKE SURE TO SAVE YOUR CONFIRMATION NUMBER AS YOU WILL NEED TO ENTER THIS NUMBER IN A LATER STEP!

– Students will be provided opportunities to engage in learning activities related to both Math and English.
– Students will begin to build relationships with staff members as well as other students.
– Students will also learn about the routines, structures and expectations of what it means to be a Kennedy Commander.
– Receive 2.5 credits towards high school graduation
