Attend Alpha

Para ver esta página en español

As public charter schools, all Alpha Public Schools campuses are open to all students, and free to attend. We admit all students who apply by the application deadline, unless we receive more applications than there are spaces — in which case we hold a random public lottery, with students then notified whether they have been accepted or placed on the wait list. At Alpha: Blanca Alvarado Middle School and Alpha: José Hernández Middle School, lottery preference will be given to siblings of currently enrolled students, and to students who reside in the Alum Rock Unified School District boundaries. At Alpha: Cornerstone Academy Prepatory School, lottery preference will be given to siblings of currently enrolled students, and to students who reside in the Franklin McKinley Unified School District boundaries. At Alpha: Cindy Avitia High School, lottery preference will be given to siblings of currently enrolled high school students, and to students who reside within the East Side Union High School District.

After submitting the registration form, students will receive a letter informing them of their enrollment status (accepted or wait-listed), as well as an enrollment packet. All students wishing to enroll or remain on the wait list must fill this packet out. All new families are also required to attend a new student orientation. Orientation dates will be sent out to families directly.
