How do I apply to a San Francisco charter school?

Because charter schools are more independent than SFUSD public schools, admittance policy varies based on each school. Which means, there are as many admittance policies as there are charter schools in San Francisco.

Once you have determined which charter school you would like your child to attend, interested parents should contact the charter school of interest directly.

A good place to start in your search for a San Francisco charter school is the KIPP Foundation – a network of public schools nationwide that help underserved students gain the skills they need to succeed in higher education and beyond. Another option is to look at California Charter School Association website
