Admission Policy – 2024/25 School Year

The following overview provides a detailed description of EBIA Admission Criteria, Enrollment Preferences, and Admission Lottery and Admission Priority.


Provided space is available, EBIA will admit all students who wish to attend the Charter School. No test or assessment shall be administered to students before acceptance and enrollment.

The Charter School asks that all interested students attend an information session to provide students and families an opportunity to learn more about EBIA’s programs.

Students wishing to attend EBIA must follow the Charter School’s admission procedures with respect to completing applications, and enrollment forms and documents by the announced deadlines.

Admission, except in the case of a public random drawing, shall not be determined by the place of residence of the pupil or his or her parent or legal guardian within the state.

Late applications for admission will result in the loss of opportunity for admission and enrollment preferences. (See EBIA Random Public Drawing details below.) However, late applications will be saved in case the school waiting list is completely exhausted.

Late return of enrollment documentation, following notification of admission, will result in loss of place on the admission priority list as determined by the results of the annual EBIA Random Public Drawing. Students may be placed at the end of the waiting list.

EBIA is not religious in its programs, admission policies, and operations, and does not charge tuition or an application fee, or discriminate against any student based upon any of the characteristics listed in Education Code Section 220.

EBIA complies with all laws establishing minimum and maximum age for public school attendance in charter schools.
