Oak Ridge Youth Development School

The Oak Ridge Youth Development School is currently accepting applications for enrollment for the summer of 2022. Students who successfully completed kindergarten through 7th grade are eligible to attend.

COVID-19 has made us take look at how we can do things better to keep our families and staff safe.

You will now be able to complete your enrollment forms online via PandaDoc’s. Request the form, which will be downloaded or emailed to you. Please complete all the information. Special note: We suggest you download and complete forms via computer, laptop or iPad. The forms are more difficult to navigate via cell phones.

Make sure all highlighted text fields are completed. If you do not have a response type the word (none) or (N/A) in the field. After completion and you sign the document it will automatically be forwarded to our school office.

If you choose to download and print, please fax to (913) 788-8038. There will be a tone prompt that will generate the fax.

Enrollment is completed when all of the documents are received and approved by the office. That includes the (2) health forms that require a signature and notarization. Download and print those forms.

After they are completed and notarized, you can scan to rkirkwood@ormbc.org or janderson@ormbc.org. If you choose to fax please fax to 913-788-8038.
