How can your child attend Northridge Academy High School
A unique application process was developed and implemented to ensure equitable access to our school by students who would otherwise, in most cases, articulate from their middle schools to Granada Hills Charter, Monroe, Kennedy and Cleveland High Schools where overcrowding and/or a year-round calendar has created educational challenges. Applications to our school are due by Friday, November 30, 2018 at 4:30pm of each year, and because of overwhelming response from the communities we serve, a random drawing process is used to select students once a year. Our applicants are accepted with the following percentages; Cleveland 40%, Monroe 30%, Granada 15%, Kennedy 15%
Check eligibility (anytime)- Interested students can confirm they live in our attendance area by using the LAUSD SchoolFinder.
For the 2019-20 school year, we will be accepting applications for incoming 9th graders only (current 8th graders who will be a 9th grader for the Fall 2019-20 semester).
Students whose home school is Cleveland, Granada Hills Charter, Kennedy and Monroe High School are eligible to apply.
It is possible that you may live in our attendance area yet not receive an application due to inaccurate records or postal delivery issues. In addition, it should be noted that applications are not mailed to the homes of current 8th graders attending a charter or private school. However, these students are still welcome to submit an application.
If for some reason you do not receive an application but you do reside in the NAHS attendance area, applications are also available online in English and Spanish. Applications are also available in the Main Office.

Applications received by fax or email are not accepted. Interested students are encouraged to turn in applications as soon as possible. Note: Turning in your application early (prior to Friday, November 30, 2018) does not increase or decrease the likelihood that your application will be accepted.

Lottery Drawing Held at 11:00 am on Wednesday, December 5, 2018
Note: Our school traditionally receives more applications from students than we can accept. Thus, we utilize a random lottery drawing to determine which students are accepted for enrollment. After all spots are filled, we continue to draw names in order to prioritize students on the waiting list.
Acceptance Letters Mailed Thursday, December 14, 2018 - After the lottery drawing, please allow time for NAHS to send out acceptance letters.
Acceptance Responses Due by 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, January 31, 2019.
Note: If your acceptance response form is not received by January 31, 2019 we will assume you are declining, and your student’s space will be offered to students on the waiting list.
