How to Enroll

The Palisades Charter Schools Complex provides for the free, nonsectarian, public education of students in Kindergarten through Grade 8. Palisades Charter Schools, as neighborhood schools, give first priority in admission to students who live in its attendance area in the Pacific Palisades community of Los Angeles.

New Family Orientation

All families new to Canyon are required to attend a mandatory New Family Orientation. It is recommended to bring any caregivers who will also be involved in your child’s schooling. The date of our New Family Orientation will be determined in the fall.



The Palisades Complex Schools also provide for the education of non-neighborhood students who wish to attend based on the District’s Desegregation or Integration policy*. This is done through a lottery process.  The lottery for the 2022-23 school year will be held online on February 25, 2022. 


The application deadline for the Unified Enrollment lottery process began on October 1, 2021 and the application window closed on November 12, 2021. For more information, please visit:


Results of the lottery will be posted online after February 25, 2022.  You will need your student application number to view your place in the lottery list. You can view the results by clicking here to look up your student application number. Your application number can be found on the letter you received from Unified Enrollment.











*If the number of students who wish to attend a Palisades Charter Complex School exceeds the school’s capacity or the capacity of students that can be accommodated at any grade level, then the admission of new students is determined by a public random drawing [Education Code 47605(d)(2)(B)]. The random drawing for determining admission priority shall take into account the admission and enrollment priorities outlined in Canyon's charter.
