Admission Process

Admission Process

Valley Alternative is one of the Los Angeles Unified Magnet Schools. In early November of each year, the Choices Brochure is published. It lists all Magnet Schools and where they are located. It also contains the applications. This brochure is mailed to all students who are currently enrolled in the Los Angeles Unified School System. The brochures can also be picked up at any local L. A. Unified Public School during late September/Early October of that year. It is necessary to reside in Los Angeles in order to attend any magnet school.

 

In order to enroll in Valley Alternative, the application form must be filled out and submitted to the Magnet Office by the deadline, which is usually in mid-November for the following school year. The Magnet Office determines the student's points. You can receive points in a few ways: by having a sibling in that school and/or by being on the waiting list from previous years. In May, letters will go out telling you if your child has or has not been accepted to the school. If you were added to the waiting list, then it is encouraged to submit a new application for our school every year until your child is accepted.

 

For those parents wanting to see the school before you apply, we offer tours of the campus. Please click here for more information.
