Background

The High School Specialty Program Application is an opportunity for each student who resides permanently within the boundaries of the Sacramento City Unified School District (SCUSD) to apply for enrollment in a SCUSD high school specialty program, based on space availability for the 2018-2019 school year. SCUSD offers specialty programs at both our neighborhood and small specialized high schools. Once an application is successfully submitted, it will be considered. Some specialty programs have specific requirements to complete the application process (see application packet for details). 

Students will be able to apply to a first and second choice program through the application. When eligibility requirements are met, applications will either be accepted or moved on to a lottery system (previously called Open Enrollment). A lottery will be implemented when eligible applications exceed the grade capacity at the requested specialty program.

Out-of-district applicants who meet the program requirements will be accepted or go on the waiting list after qualified in-district applicants per California Education Code.
