To determine if your family is eligible for the National School Lunch Program, please visit the CA Dept. of Education website: National School Lunch Program

Verification of Preferences Indicated on Lottery Form

A verification of your priority will be done prior to finalizing your child's enrollment. If your child was offered enrollment via a priority area and Larchmont Charter School determines that your child does not actually qualify for that priority, your child will be placed at the bottom of the waiting list. Your child may still be admitted off the waitlist, as qualifying for a priority is not a condition for admission. If you need further clarification on any of these priorities, please email [email protected] or contact Admissions at 323.380.7893, ext. 302. 

Continuous Enrollment Through 12th Grade

Once a student is enrolled, they remain enrolled through 12th grade unless a parent/guardian releases their seat and you do not have to complete a new lottery form every year. 

Lottery Application Availability & Lottery Drawing

Lottery forms will be available at the beginning of November and closes mid February and the lottery drawing is held on the last Saturday in February. 

How the Waitlist Works

All families of students who are not offered admission for the upcoming school year will remain on the waiting list until it is cleared at the end of the academic year for which it was drawn unless there is a written request by the parent to remove their child from the waiting list prior to that time.

Offers from the Waiting List

If a space should become available, families will be contacted in the order of the waiting list.

  • If this offer is extended prior to school beginning, then families will have 72 hours to respond whether the offer is being accepted or declined.
  • If this offer is extended once school has started, families will have 24 hours to respond whether the offer is being accepted or declined.
