Enrollment Process

We are a New Century High School, and therefore have a limited unscreened policy for student admission. Priority is given to students who attend informational meetings like the Open Houses or high school fairs; we do not select students based on their grades. We will be participating in the citywide high school application process. If you are interested in attending this school, please remember to put program code #Q76A on your high school application form.
