Enrollment Information

Thank you for your interest in Valley Charter Middle School. We are now accepting applications for the 2020-2021 school year.
To apply, click here to submit an online application.
The deadline for submitting an enrollment application for inclusion in the random public drawing (often called the "lottery") is Thursday, April 2, 2020 at 3:00 pm. Any applications submitted at this time will be placed on the wait list after all those who applied by the deadline. The Random Public Drawing for the 2020-2021 school year will be held on Thursday, April 23, 2020 at 3:30 p.m. in room 115.

VCMS offers priority enrollment for certain groups of applicants. No person shall be subject to discrimination on the basis of sex, gender, sexual orientation, ethnic group identification, race, color, ancestry, national origin, religion, or disability.


In the event of a public random drawing, admissions exemptions and preferences will be as follows:

       1. Existing students (exempt)

       2.   Siblings of existing students (exempt)

      3.  Children of faculty (preference)*

      4. Students who reside in the attendance area of Andres & Maria Cardenas Elementary School. (preference)

         5. Residents of the District (preference)

* Children of faculty will not constitute more than 10% of the school’s enrollment.


If you are extended an offer for priority enrollment, you will need to provide supporting documentation in the enrollment packet to accept the enrollment offer. A verification of your priority will be done prior to finalizing your child’s enrollment. If your child is offered priority enrollment and VCMS deems that the child does not qualifyyour child will remain on the wait list

Once enrollment is reached, the remaining names will continue to be assigned numbers and will be placed on a “wait list” in order. If vacancies occur during the school year, the vacancies will be filled according to the order of the wait list.

Every family in the random public drawing will be notified of their wait list number by email or telephone. As spaces become available, parents will be notified by U.S. mail, phone call or email. Families will be given a deadline by which to accept the spot and request an enrollment packet.

Thank you again for your interest in Valley Charter Middle School!
