Lottery Information


Applications will be accepted during a publicly advertised pre-enrollment period each year for enrollment in the following school year.  Following the open enrollment period each year, applications shall be counted to determine whether any grade level has received more applications than availability.  In the event that this happens, BCCA will hold a public random lottery to determine admission for the impacted grade level, per the requirements of Ed Code 47605(d)(2)(B).


The following guidelines apply to the application process:

  • By law, all BCCA applicants are accepted by a public random drawing.
  • The lottery will be held on January 28, 2022, for incoming 9th grade students.
  • The lottery will be held on March 1, 2022 for students in grades 10-12.
  • Applicants not selected for enrollment in the lottery will be given an order number for the waitlist.
  • All families will be notified by email or text of their status in the lottery drawing.
  • It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to notify BCCA of preferences that apply to the applicant and to provide verification of that preference.
  • Should your child not be accepted and would like to re-apply for the following school year, you will need to submit another Intent to Enroll form during open enrollment the following year.
