Thank you for visiting the Pacific Collegiate School Lottery application website.
Pacific Collegiate School (PCS) is a public charter school open to any student in 7th through 12th grade seeking a rigorous college preparatory education. Admission to PCS is through a public, random lottery, as required by California law.
There are no student admission tests, tuition, fees of any kind, or any other requirements except the two listed above. PCS, like many other public charter schools, conducts an annual lottery because there are more requests to enroll than there are seats available.
Thirty percent (30%) of seats in the 7th Grade are reserved for applicants to the 7th Grade from traditionally underrepresented populations. Click here https://4.files.edl.io/91f9/11/19/19/182525-18499cd5-0b60-411c-8353-4626cf2bdf2e.pdf
