Apply + Take a Tour!
CWC LA is a community of students, staff, families, guardians and volunteers representing many voices and experiences that embody the richness and variety of the Los Angeles urban landscape. Across our network of five schools, we believe that diversity makes us stronger, embrace and welcome all backgrounds and cultures, honor each individual, and value all dimensions of diversity seen and unseen.
4 Steps to Enrollment
+ First Day
A random public lottery is held if the number of applications a school receives by the lottery application deadline exceeds the seats available.
Submitting an application does not guarantee enrollment. Attendance at the lottery drawing is optional and will not impact results. All families will be notified via the CWC Los Angeles enrollment system and email of lottery results, including if their application is accepted or placed on the waitlist. Visit our CWC school websites for lottery dates!
For the 2023-24 school year:
March 7th, 2023

Families who receive an offer:
If offered a seat, you will be asked to accept your offer and complete a registration (enrollment) packet for your child’s school. Please note any important school deadlines.
Families who are waitlisted:
We will keep you updated as accepted families enroll. Spaces that become available will be offered to the next family on the waiting list until the class is full.
Students extended an offer for enrollment will need to provide supporting documentation in the enrollment packet to accept the enrollment offer. A verification of this documentation will be done prior to finalizing enrollment.
4. Orientation + First Day
Welcome to the CWC community!
Your school site will send orientation times and materials. There may also be new family events you can attend.
See you and your student(s) on the first day of school!
