Apply Now for the 2018-2019 School Year!

The open enrollment application deadline for Oakland Charter High School for the 2018-2019 year was on February 16, 2018. Applications received by this deadline will be included in a lottery held on March 5, 2018. On Monday, March 12, 2018, you should see all of your charter school lottery results in your student dashboard and at that time you can ACCEPT/DECLINE an offer. The deadline to ACCEPT/DECLINE a charter school offer is March 29, 2018. If you do not accept by this date, the charter school lottery offer(s) will expire. Once you accept an offer, offers from other schools will be automatically declined. You can remain on waitlists, but may only accept an offer at one school.


If you missed the open enrollment application deadline for Oakland Charter High School, you will still be able to submit an application for the 2018-2019 school year starting on February 21, 2018. Applications submitted after the February 16 deadline will be considered in the Round 2 application - you will be placed on a waiting list at each of your selected schools and/or offered enrollment if space becomes available. Round 2 applicants will be placed on waitlists on a first-come first-served basis.
