Equitas Academy Charter Schools are tuition-free, open-enrollment, college-preparatory public charter schools. Students are accepted regardless of background, academic record, or special education eligibility on a first-come, first-served basis. If more students apply than spaces are available, students are admitted by lottery.
Equitas Academy Schools are open to all students in California. Completing this form does not guarantee admission to Equitas Academy. Admission priority will first be given to siblings of currently enrolled students and children of teachers and staff (up to a cap of 10% of enrollment); further admissions priority will be given to students who live within the boundaries of the Los Angeles Unified School District. Admission will be granted to students whose names are drawn in the lottery to be held in March 2023 at each Equitas Academy school site. All other applicants will be placed on a waiting list in the order their names are drawn.The waiting list will not carry over from year to year. Students who do not attend the school must fill out a new application in future years. Please check the website at www.equitasacademy.org for further information. If you have questions or need assistance completing an application, please call (213) 201-0440.
