Priorities for Enrollment

When a public charter school receives more applications than space allows, a random lottery is held to determine which students will be enrolled. Each school’s lottery may differ in the way it prioritizes different types of applicants, in accordance with its school policies and California charter school law.

The following information will be used to prioritize applicants at Richmond College Prep Schools during the Round One student assignment process. No particular type of applicant is guaranteed admission, and all applicants are prioritized in the following way:

  1. Children attending our pre-school will have preference for kindergarten at RCP TK-8
  2. Children who are already enrolled in RCP TK-8
  3. Children living in the Santa Fe or Coronado neighborhoods
  4. Siblings of children already enrolled in RCP TK-8
  5. Children in WCCUSD’s jurisdiction
