We work with and for parents.
As an independent (2r), public (tuition-free) charter school, enrollment is open to all students. There are no boundary restrictions - all new students who apply have equal chances of admission. Although we’re no longer taking applications for the current school year, we’re currently taking applications via our SchoolMint enrollment platform for the 2022-2023 school year.
We have already run grade specific lotteries for the 2022-2023 school year for new students. You may still apply for the 2022-2023 school year (grades K-10) between now and June 30. We still have seats available in 10th grade, but all other applications for grades K-9 will be put on the waitlist in the order in which they are received. Please ensure that you apply for the correct grade for the 2022-2023 school year and contact our school if your child has a sibling already enrolled in the school. If your child has been placed on the waitlist, please monitor your inbox for an offer(s) from LCCA. We hope to make another round of offers to new students as we finalize our facility plans for next school year.
If you receive an offer between now and June 30, you will be required to accept your offer within five days, and then you will have two weeks after your offer is accepted to register your child(ren). If you do not complete registration within this two-week window, your offer(s) will be withdrawn and given to the next student on the waitlist. Although LCCA is tuition-free, just like any other public school we do have some required fees. In particular, a non-refundable user fee** ($100 per student) must be paid at the time of registration. This registration fee must be paid via check and dropped off at either LCCA campus.
LCCA 2022-2023 Enrollment Timeline
In summary, in anticipation of high demand for any available seats we have for the 2022-2023 school year and to ensure a smooth, fair process, we are strictly adhering to the following timeline and process:
We will continue to accept applications between now and June 30, 2022.
Registration must be completed, and user fees paid ($100 each per student) within two weeks of accepting an offer. Please contact us if you need assistance paying the user fee.
New families will be required to bring in your student's original birth certificate to show staff (copies will not be made) and pay for required user fee via check within the two-week registration window.
July 1, 2022 – application and registration period will be closed for the 2022-2023 school year. Students on waitlists may still receive offers if any students are withdrawn throughout the 2022-2023 school year.

Arrival & Dismissal Procedures
Parents, please read these very important instructions on arrival and dismissal procedures at both our LCCA East (K-4th) and LCCA West (5th-9th) campuses:
LCCA School Uniform Policy
LCCA will require student uniforms. The purpose of the uniform is twofold: 1) simplify the matter of student attire by removing the competitive nature of clothing; and 2) promote an identity with the school. Although the dress code provides many options in choices, all students are expected to be neat and clean in appearance.
Families can purchase daily school uniform items from the store of your choice (such as Land’s End, French Toast, Old Navy, Gap, Walmart, Target, Land’s End, and AmazonSmile). If you buy anything off of AmazonSmile, be sure to select LCCA as your charity of choice!
Every student will be required to have one formal uniform that will be required every Friday (October - May) and for special occasions (performances, school photos, and community events). These items may also be worn during a regular school day as well. Select formal uniform items (including plaid clothing, ties, sweater vests, and blazers) must be purchased from FlynnOhara.com. The shoes, socks, tights, shirts and pants pictured on our Flynn O’Hara shop meet LCCA’s formal uniform requirements but may be purchased elsewhere. Optional crested and non-crested items are available on FlynnOhara.com as well. All plaid jumpers and skirts, and blazers will be stiff upon arrival – machine wash/dry first before wearing (no ironing required)! P.E. uniforms for 7-9th grade will also need to be purchased through LCCA’s store on FlynnOhara.com.
Why we chose Flynn O’Hara as our uniform provider:
Generous warranty and return policy
Wide range of sizes
Free Zoom fitting appointments
Free shipping over $75
Great customer service
BEFORE & AFTER CARE PROGRAM
LCCA provides an in-house Before and After Care program if you need to drop off your child/children at school early (before the regular drop-off times) or pick them up later (after the regular pick-up times). Before Care is available beginning at 6:30 a.m., and After Care is available until 6 p.m., Monday - Friday, at both school campuses. The cost per child is $6 an hour. Our program will be staffed by LCCA faculty, staff, and parent and community volunteers (all will be pre-screened).
If you have questions about registering your child for Before and/or After Care, please contact us.
