Charter schools are open to all students! They do not have special eligibility or entrance requirements. Charter schools are built on the belief that every student should have the chance to go to a great school that puts their needs first, regardless of zip code, income or ability level.
California’s charter schools are diverse and serve a population that mirrors traditional district schools.
