how to enroll
BCS provides families with an innovative, empowering and results-oriented choice.
Follow the steps below to enroll your student at BCS.
1) Submit your enrollment form
If you are unable to access the form online, please visit the Bullis Charter School office at 102 West Portola Avenue, Los Altos for a paper copy of the enrollment form.
2) Gather your documents
Carefully review the list of required documents below. A copy of each document is required for every child.
A. Copy of child’s birth certificate, Passport, OR Baptismal certificate and
B. TWO of the following:
• Recent Property tax bill
• Current Rental property contract, lease, or payment receipts
• Voter registration card
• Current DMV vehicle registration
• Utility bill that dates within 3 months (gas/electric, land line, garbage, water, cable – cell phone not acceptable)
NOTE: Above documents must contain the parent/guardian name(s) and corresponding residence address.
BCS offers equal access to applicants through our enrollment lottery regardless of their actual or perceived race, color, gender or sexual identity, national origin, citizenship, immigration status, or status of their parents/guardians. The requested documents are solely for the purpose of establishing the age and residency of the applicant.
If you are unable to provide any of the required documents for any reason, please send an email to email@example.com or call 650-947-4100 to discuss your situation with our enrollment coordinator.
3) Complete the process
An enrollment packet for each student, containing a completed enrollment form and all required documents, should be submitted online, in person, or mailed to the BCS main office.
Submitting a completed Enrollment Packet does not automatically guarantee admission. You will be notified of your child’s admission status following the close of the Open Enrollment period. If more students apply than seats available, we hold a public random lottery in early February* following the close of the Open Enrollment period to select students. All remaining students are placed on a wait list.
*The enrollment lottery for the 2016-2017 School Year was held on Saturday, February 6, 2016.
NOTE: If your child is offered a spot in Bullis Charter School, you will be asked to complete additional registration forms to complete the admission process.
