A Transitional Kindergarten eligibility extension is being reviewed by our administration and teachers. If this extension is adopted it will extend the eligibility cut off birthday date to February 2nd. Our Board of Directors is scheduled to vote on adopting this extension for the 2022-23 school year on January 31st.

Enrollment And Public Random Drawing

Under California state law, enrollment to California Creative Learning Academy & California Creative Learning Academy Middle School is governed by a Public Random Drawing (PRD). In early Spring, LFCSA conducts its PRD for admission to the school for the following academic year. In order to be part of the PRD, a family must complete the short PRD application form and timely submit it to the school. Each completed application will be assigned a number, and during the PRD, numbers will be drawn at random.

If there are any spaces available in the grades above kindergarten, then the PRD will also determine admission to those grade levels. At the PRD, the numbers drawn at random are recorded

Typically, California Creative Learning Academy & California Creative Learning Academy Middle School receives applications in excess of the number of spaces available. Those students who do not get picked in the PRD for the spaces available will be placed on a waiting list. Students on the waiting list may be invited to join CalCreative at any point during the school year if space becomes available. If the student is not admitted by the time of the PRD for the following school year, they must re-submit an application to be considered for admittance.

If you have questions about our public random drawing please reach out to Johanna Voutounou
