The goal of the Ventura Charter School is to attract, enroll, and retain the broadest spectrum of students and families representative of the rich diversity existing in the County. The School is nonsectarian in its programs, admission policies, employment practices, and all other operations. Ventura Charter School does not charge tuition and does not discriminate in admissions or outreach against any student on the basis of ethnicity, national origin, gender, or disability.


If the number of students who wish to attend Ventura Charter School exceeds the School's capacity, enrollment will be determined by a public random drawing. Preference shall be extended to pupils currently attending the School and the following preferences, which are listed below in order of priority:

  1. Children of staff (not to exceed 10% of the total student population).
  2. Siblings of students currently enrolled (and continuing the following year) in the school.
  3. Applicants who reside within the boundaries of E.P. Foster Elementary School in the Ventura Unified School District.*
  4. Applicants who reside within the boundaries of the Ventura Unified School District.*

 *Please be aware that all applicant addresses will be independently verified. Applicants found to have used a fraudulent address will be barred from entering the lottery for a full year.
