Camino Nuevo Charter Academy offers a tuition-free, high-quality, college-preparatory education from preschool through 12th grade. When our students graduate, they are college-ready, college-bound. 


Our schools do not charge tuition and will not discriminate against any student on the basis of ethnicity, national origin, gender, or disability. There are no academic requirements, interviews, or fees for admission.
Admission is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Spaces are limited, so if the volume of applications exceeds available seats, the school holds a public lottery to determine admission.

How to Apply

  1. Choose a school where you want to enroll your child. 

  2. Download and complete the interest form to participate in the lottery. You may use the same form to apply to multiple schools. Submit the completed form in person or by mail. K-8 Lottery Interest Form

The Lottery 

January 26 

  • Camino Nuevo schools hold a lottery for available seats. All eligible applications are entered into the lottery. The lottery is open to the public, but attendance is not mandatory. 

  • The lottery is completely random with select preferences built in for siblings of current Camino Nuevo students.

  • If space allows and you live within the attendance boundaries of the Sandra Cisneros or Jose Castellanos campuses, you do not need to participate in the lottery. 

  • If your child wins a seat through the lottery, you will receive a letter or a phone call. You must confirm within two weeks that you intend to enroll your child to secure your spot.
  • If you submit an application after the deadline and there are no spaces available, we will add your child’s name 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.
