Cheyenne Mountain Charter Academy or The Vanguard School is a school of choice serving students in grades K-12 from across the Pikes Peak region. Founded in 1995 by several parents interested in a more rigorous academic curriculum, Vanguard continues to provide excellence in education in a safe, structured environment by adhering to its mission statement.

Since the demand for enrollment at the school is so high, Smart Choice developed the option for parents to submit applications for students to future years in advance rather than being limited to applying to the coming year only. These applications are easily managed in their own school making it simple to keep track of applications by year as well as submission date.

Selection of the applications is done using the Smart Choice lottery component making the process of placing students and managing wait lists simple and secure. Post selection, parents have the option to accept their seat into the school from their dashboard and move through the Smart Choice Enrollment process. Lengthy paper enrollment packets are a thing of the past with this feature as it allows parents to seamless fill out their enrollment forms with most of their information being filled in based on their application making the process quick for parents and efficient for a small staff of administrators.
