Campus Tours (in-person)
We are excited to be able to welcome our families for in-person tours.
We are working with the Department of Health to make sure these tours are safe. For this reason, we will ask you to sign up for a large time block and will send you an email with your specific 30-minute time slot once we confirm how many visitors we can have in our building at one time. Since space is very limited we may not be able to accommodate you on your specific day choice and may reach out to you to pick a future tour date.

Enrollment And Public Random Drawing
Under California state law, enrollment to LFCSA is governed by a Public Random Drawing (PRD). In early Spring, LFCSA conducts its PRD for admission to the school for the following academic year. In order to be part of the PRD, a family must complete the short PRD application form and timely submit it to the school. Each completed application will be assigned a number, and during the PRD, numbers will be drawn at random.
If there are any spaces available in the grades above kindergarten, then the PRD will also determine admission to those grade levels. At the PRD, the numbers drawn at random are recorded
Typically, LFCSA receives applications in excess of the number of spaces available. Those students who do not get picked in the PRD for the spaces available will be placed on a waiting list. Students on the waiting list may be invited to join LFCSA at any point during the school year if space becomes available. If the student is not admitted by the time of the PRD for the following school year, they must re-submit an application to be considered for admittance.
