As a part of the California public school system, we are excited to open our doors to all interested students. It is our goal to provide each parent with a choice of schools and programs. With interest in American Heritage Charter Schools at an all-time high, we are currently receiving more requests for enrollment than we can accept. To ensure fairness in our selection process, we follow state and local guidelines, which require us to hold a lottery whenever the number of applications we receive exceeds our capacity. The specific guidelines for each program are outlined on the Admissions page of each school's website. Click on the "Enroll Now" button for the program in which you are interested, and the appropriate Admissions page will open up.
