Thank you for your interest in our program! The Classical Academies have no tuition fee to attend and open to all students in San Diego, Orange, and Riverside Counties, regardless of school boundaries. There are no district transfers required to attend. New families should plan to attend a New Student Open House held each February. If you are interested in enrollment during the school year, please fill out an interest form here.


State and local guidelines require charter schools to hold a lottery whenever the number of applicants exceeds capacity. The state guidelines prioritize students living within the boundaries of the authorizing district. If The Classical Academies host a lottery, applicants will be selected based on the lottery results, per these established priorities.
