  • Thank you for choosing Fairport Harbor Schools for open enrollment! Below you will find our application and the board policies. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 440-354-5400.
  • Open Enrollment Overview

    Fairport Harbor Exempted Village Schools accepts transfers from other school districts through open enrollment. Students from school districts throughout Ohio (not just surrounding school districts) may apply for open enrollment into Fairport Harbor Exempted Village Schools. All open enrollment guidelines must be met before approval is granted. Students will be notified in writing in June if their application has been approved or denied.

    General Open Enrollment Guidelines and Information:

    • Submitting an open enrollment application does NOT guarantee approval.
    • Open enrollment is based on space availability in a particular grade or school as well as program requirements.
    • Students expelled or transferred for disciplinary reasons by the student services office will be denied open enrollment.
    • Students who move out of the district during the year, but wish to remain in the district, must apply for open enrollment.
    • Transportation is not provided for students who open enroll.
    • Students with IEP’s need to submit a copy of the IEP.
    • Open enrolling in another school may affect a student’s athletic eligibility.
    • Once you have been accepted, we make every effort to continue your educational pathway here at FHEVS.

    New students often share that they feel immediately welcomed and accepted here at Fairport where our small size allows us to pay individual attention to our students.  We are excited to have your students join our community of learners..
