The Lottery: As per our charter petition, we hold a lottery the 1st Wednesday of each month beginning December of each school year to determine our waitlist. The lottery will take all new applications and applications will be chosen at random then given a waiting list number. Enrollment is not guarenteed with a waiting list number. Enrollment begins late spring.

How to Apply:

1. Download the Application/Registration Form

2. Turn in the Application form in person, by mail, or email. 

Beginning in December of each school year a lottery is conducted the 1st Wednesday of each month. Spots are not "guarenteed" until late spring of the following year. 


California law requires schools to maintain the privacy of students health information. Your child’s identity will not be associated with any report produced as a result of these requirements. If economic circumstances are preventing you from obtaining the above requirements, you may be eligible for assistance.
