Information for the 2022-23 School Year Enrollment Process

  • School applications open November 15, 2021 for the 2022-2023 school year. 

  • The application deadline for NOCCS for the 2022-2023 school year is February 4, 2022.

  • Applications received by this deadline will be included in our public lottery, held on Tuesday, March 10th, 2022 at 4 p.m. On Thursday, March 11, 2022 you will see your charter school lottery results (OFFER or WAITLIST) in your online student dashboard and at that time you can ACCEPT or DECLINE an offer.

  • The deadline to ACCEPT/DECLINE a charter school offer is March 25, 2021. If you do not accept by this date, your charter school lottery offer(s) will expire. Once you accept an offer, offers from other schools will be automatically declined. You can remain on waitlists but may only accept an offer at one school. 

  • If you miss the February 4, 2022 application deadline, you will still be able to submit an online application for the 2022-2023 school year. Applications submitted after the February 4, 2022 deadline will be considered a Late Application - you will be placed on a waiting list at each of your selected schools, and/or offered enrollment if space becomes available. 

  • If you already attend NOCCS, you do not need to apply to attend again next year.

Open enrollment begins in the fall before each new school year. For the 2022-2023 school year, open enrollment launches November 15th 2021.

NOCCS is a public charter school for grades K-5, free and open to all California residents. English language learners and students with disabilities are encouraged to apply.

Children entering kindergarten must be 5 years of age by September 1st of their kindergarten year.


We host a number of tours and open houses to give you a peek into what we're all about. You'll get to visit classrooms, see the school grounds, meet other prospective families, and ask questions.




Start by attending one of our tours or open houses. That way, you can see for yourself what we're all about.


If you decide that NOCCS would be a good fit for your family, enroll online.


Our admissions lottery is held in mid-March and is open to the public, though attendance is not required.


We will notify you by email and phone if your student receives a spot. Waitlist students will be notified by email.


If your student is drawn for an open slot, you will be notified within 5 days of the lottery. We will provide further instructions at that time on how to proceed with enrollment and submit any required documents and information.


If your student gets a spot on the waitlist, you will be notified by email.

If and when a spot becomes available for your student, we will notify you as soon as we can.

In the meantime, you can see your student's waitlist status in your online account.

We were granted admission off of the waitlist and have been pleasantly surprised by the proactive and personable communication on behalf of the administration and teachers. We've received many emails (and even a hand-written postcard from the principal!) welcoming us to the school.
