Our Annual Application Timeline

October 15--Applications open for the following school year.
Each year in mid-October, ACLC begins accepting priority applications for the following school year. For example, applications for the 2020-21 school year opened in mid-October of 2019. Families are welcome to apply regardless of residential address. However, our charter requires us to give priority to residents of the City of Alameda.
January 31--Deadline to apply in time for lottery.
All applications submitted between mid-October and January 31st are eligible for the lottery held in early February. Alameda residents receive an in-district priority in the lottery. Offers of admission and wait list positions based on lottery results are emailed out and available to families in early February.
February (First Tuesday)--Lottery is held.
February through August--Families accept or decline spots. Further offers are made from wait lists.
Those receiving initial offers via the lottery have 7 days to accept or decline. As families accept or decline spots, we proceed down the grade-level wait lists until all available spaces are full. Wait list order is determined by priority and lottery placement, or, if you apply after January 31, by priority and date of application.
