If the number of students applying for admission exceeds openings available, enrollment is determined by a public random drawing. Students who applied by the deadline will be included in the lottery. Enrollment preference will be extended to siblings of enrolled New LA students, children of board members, founders, teachers, and staff.


Admissions Notification 

Families of all accepted students will receive an automatic notification. You must confirm within two weeks that you intend to enroll your child to secure a spot.

If you submit an application after March 15, 2020 and there are no spaces available, your child’s name will be added to a waitlist. We will admit students from the waitlist after the lottery, as spots become available and in the order in which we received applications. 


March–September 2020: Students Admitted from the Waitlist

Students on the waitlist are notified automatically via the ApplyLA system when a space becomes available.
