Quick Enrollment FAQ

Our schools are tuition-free, open-enrollment charter public schools. To enroll in a KIPP SoCal school for 2020-2021 school year, you must submit an application either online or in person at one of our schools' offices. If the number of applications received exceeds the capacity of a grade level, we will hold a public lottery (see lottery dates above) to assure all applicants an equal chance of gaining admission in accordance with the preferences outlined in our charter petitions. 

To be eligible for the lottery, you must submit your application before 4:00 pm PST on the interest period deadline date. If you submit an application after the deadline, you may still be offered a seat if there is space available, or you will be added to the waitlist on a first-come, first-served basis.
