Thank you for your interest in pursuing your child’s education in Springs Charter Schools.

Our charter schools serve students in grades TK-12 who reside in Imperial, Inyo, Kern, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and San Diego counties, and we look forward to having you join us.

We are now accepting applications for the 2021/22 school year.

Due to the pandemic and the State of California’s budget, our enrollment growth may be limited for the upcoming school year. In light of that, and in order to give our enrolling families as much advance notice as possible, we plan to hold lotteries for Citrus Springs (Orange County), Empire Springs (San Bernardino County), Harbor Springs (San Diego County), Pacific Springs (San Diego County) and Vista Springs (San Diego County) on April 7, 2021, and for River Springs (Riverside County) on April 8, 2021.
The lottery drawing will be broadcast live to anyone who would like to attend and details will be posted on the home page of our website. 

Applications must be completed with required documents and submitted by March 12, 2021, to be included in the lottery pool. Applications already completed and currently waiting for a spot in one of the Springs programs will be included in the lottery. The lottery will be pulled by charter, by program, and by grade level. 

We are hopeful that we will be able to open enrollment more widely if the state budget allows and will have more information available after July 1, 2021.

  • Notifications
    • Notifications will be sent by email and text
    • To accept a spot, parent will need to respond by filling out an acceptance form provided in the notification email
    • Parents will have 2 business days to accept the spot once notified.

Please Note:
Our programs for the 2020/21 school year are full at this time. However, we do still recommend that you apply and complete the necessary paperwork so that our team can provide you with any immediately available educational options as they become available and/or place your child(ren) on the pending enrollment list for your preferred program(s).
