If you are interested in applying for Free & Reduced Meal benefits, the online application is available at: 

CharterChoice Online Meal Benefits Application 

Please remember, you must reapply for Free & Reduced Meal benefits every school year. 

 IMPORTANT NOTE: Excel Academy’s online meal payment system is now separate from Jeffco’s meal payment system.  Recent emails and messaging from Jeffco about meal payments and Free & Reduced Priced Meal applications are no longer applicable to Excel Academy.

Once the application is processed, CharterChoice Collaborative (SFA) will send families a letter of eligibility.  You will then need to provide a copy of this eligibility letter to the school in order to have registration fees and field trip fees waived for your child.  

Please note that benefits will not start until your application has been processed and eligibility has been determined via CharterChoice, so any charges to your child’s meal account prior to that determination are the family’s responsibility to pay.  

If you have questions around the eligibility process, please contact CharterChoice Collaborative at 303-953-4170.
