Charter schools are independently-run public schools—they accept all interested students and cannot discriminate. If there is more interest than spots, a random lottery will be conducted. Like other public schools, charter schools receive funding from the government based on the number of students they educate. Charter schools are unique, however, in the exchange of autonomy for accountability: charter schools are given autonomy over hiring, curriculum, budgets, etc. in exchange for delivering superior results on state tests.
California Collegiate Charter School is located at 2009 W Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90062. Join us on May 25 from 5-7pm for our first Open House!
California Collegiate will employ a “slow-growth” model common to high-performing charter schools, opening with a single 6th grade class in the fall of 2016, and adding one grade level each year until we reach our full 6th through 12th grade model. Each grade level will have approximately 136 students (4 classes of 34); at full capacity, the school will enroll 408 students in its middle school academy and 544 students in its high school academy, for a total of 952 students.
California Collegiate will begin with only sixth grade, and grow one grade level per year until we reach our full 6th through 12th grade span in 2022. Thus, we are currently only enrolling students who will be in sixth grade for the 2016-2017 school year.
California Collegiate is currently enrolling students for 6th and 7th grade. You can start the process by submitting an Intent to Enroll form online, by calling the school directly at 323-450-7290, or by visiting us between 8:30am and 5:00pm at 2009 W Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
Through your time, resources, and network. You can donate to the school to help cover the cost of classroom libraries, field trips, and professional development for teachers. You can volunteer to assist with community outreach or specific projects as they come up. You can speak with the Board of Directors about potential board service opportunities, and/or refer other interested professionals who may have time and expertise to contribute.
Absolutely not. California Collegiate is a free, public charter school and will never charge tuition or any other fees.
