For families that live in the Deer Creek attendance area
(Stony Creek and Ute Meadows areas)

As resident families, 5th graders are guaranteed their choice of pathway in 6th grade at Deer Creek during the 1st round of choice enrollment because Deer Creek is their “home” school.

  • In EnrollJeffco, the default choice is Deer Creek Middle School - STEM Program
  • To choose the Humanities Program, in the Intent to Enroll window select No or I'm Not Sure.  
    • In the next window, search for "Deer Creek" and select Deer Creek Middle School - Humanities Program
    • Complete the rest of the enrollment process
    • As a Deer Creek area resident, this will change your automatic acceptance from STEM to Humanities.




For all families who reside outside the Deer Creek attendance area, applications received at any time during the Round 1 window are entered into a lottery, based on the following priorities established by Jeffco:

  1. Jeffco Resident with a currently enrolled sibling who will also be attending Deer Creek in 2021-22
  2. Child of a full-time staff member at Deer Creek
  3. Jeffco Resident and currently attending Stony Creek or Ute Meadows through choice-enrollment
  4. Any other Jeffco Resident
  5. Non-Jeffco Resident with a currently enrolled sibling who will also be attending Deer Creek in 2021-22
  6. Non-Jeffco Resident and currently attending Stony Creek or Ute Meadows through choice-enrollment
  7. Any other Non-Jeffco Resident

After January 15, Jeffco will process all choice enrollment applications and contact families with their status and information for next steps.
