95% of parents agree: "I would recommend Collegiate to a family friend looking for a college preparatory high school in Los Angeles."


An important choice. Your choice.

Maybe you’re a 7th grader or an 8th grader beginning to carefully research your high school options and making a list of schools where you’ll apply. Or maybe you’re already a high school student, and you're looking for a more academically challenging and supportive school community than what your current high school is providing you. Either way, we invite you to explore Collegiate! 

Collegiate Charter High School is a small, academically rigorous college preparatory high school where all students are working toward a common goal: admission to the four-year college or university of your choice. 

Collegiate has been an amazing experience. I have seen the improvements my daughter has made at this high school: The curriculum and the rigorous learning have made my daughter work at a college level. Also, I love how the staff goes above and beyond encouraging each child to be accepted to a four-year university. I would really recommend this school to anyone!

How do I apply?


We admit students through a public, need-blind admissions lottery each January for 9th grade of the following fall. Any student who lives in California and will be a 9th grader in fall of 2018 can apply using our online admissions form.


If you are accepted to the school, you will receive a letter of admission in early February 2018 along with your enrollment form. Complete and return this enrollment form by Friday, February 9, 2018. This holds your spot in the school for the fall.


In order to be 100% ready to start school in August, complete and return your registration packet. These can be completed at home and dropped off at the office on any weekday. Or you can attend one of our spring registration days where we will help you complete your packet.

Current high school students

We still have a few open spots for current 9th grade, 10th grade, and 11th grade students for the current school year. To enroll for the current school year, please call the school immediately to set up an appointment with our admissions team and a meeting with our school director: (213) 304-7077.

How can I learn more?

We encourage you to schedule a visit to the school! When you visit, we will offer you a tour of our classrooms. We will also set up time for you to speak with current students, teachers, or parents.
