To Apply

The application deadline has passed for the 9th Grade lottery for the 2014-2015 school year. You may join the Wait Pool at this time. If you are applying for 10th -12th grade, then you may join the Wait Pool. There is no deadline for the Wait Pool Application, but we recommend submitting it as soon as you can. 

Welcome to the Gateway enrollment application process. As a public charter school, Gateway seeks to serve a diverse group of students and send each one on the road to college. As required by California law, we hold a lottery for admission if the number of applicants exceeds the number of spots available. For those admitted to Gateway, we use the materials submitted during the application process to ensure that each student receives proper course placements, support, and enrichment opportunities.

For your convenience, we have provided step-by-step application instructions for each type of applicant. Please be sure to carefully review the details of each step. If you need assistance to complete the application, please call our main office Monday-Friday between 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. at: 415.749.3600. We are happy to help.
