Application Deadline and Lottery
If the number of students applying for admission exceeds openings available, entrance will be determined by a public random lottery. The lottery will be held on January 24. To be eligible for selection in the lottery, your application must be complete, accurate and received by January 17.
Students who live within the attendance boundaries of the Sandra Cisneros or Jose Castellanos campuses receive preference for admission if spaces are available. Families must still apply through ApplyLA.org or by phone.
Families of all accepted students will receive an automatic notification. You must confirm within two weeks that you intend to enroll your child to secure a spot.
If you submit an application after January 17 and there are no spaces available, your child’s name will be added to a waitlist. We will admit students from the waitlist after the lottery, as spots become available and in the order in which we received applications.

Charter School Complaint Notice and Form
Charter schools are not allowed to discourage a pupil from enrolling or seeking to enroll because the pupil exhibits characteristics such as students with disabilities, academically low-achieving, English learners, neglected or delinquent, homeless, socially economically disadvantaged, foster youth, or based on nationality, race, ethnicity, or sexual orientation.
Charter schools are not allowed to request a pupil's records before enrollment or encourage a child who is enrolled in a charter school to disenroll or transfer to another school. A parent, guardian, or pupil (18 years or older) may file a Charter School Complaint Form to the authorizing entity if they suspect the charter school is in violation of Education Code Section 47605(d)(4).
