Admissions Procedure

Admission to Sonoma Charter School is open to any resident of California without regard of ethnicity, national origin, gender, or disability. The school’s goal is to recruit a diverse student population, reflective of the Sonoma Valley and surrounding areas, from families that are committed to the school’s instructional and operational philosophy.

The following steps are taken in admitting a child as a student to the Sonoma Charter School.

  • Applications are available in the school office.
  • Interested families may attend an orientation night and take a scheduled tour of the campus during school hours, during which an application is given.
  • Families submit an application form for each one of the eligible children in the family.
  • Each spring the director, office manager and a district representative conduct a lottery. All applications are assigned a lottery number and all slots are filled according to lottery results. If the number of applications exceeds the number of available slots the lottery results establish a waiting list determining the order of subsequent admissions during the school year as new slots open up. The school’s capacity is 231 students.

Open slots are filled according to the following guidelines

  • Once a family has been selected, eligible siblings are given preference in admission
  • Families are informed about their child’s admission status and the philosophy, policy, and goals of the school. They are asked to accept or reject the slot(s) within a given time period.
  • Current immunization records, health screening documents and proof of birth data are required for registration. Kindergarten students must be five years of age by September 1st to enroll in August.
