How to Apply

Semillas Community Schools aim to accommodate all students who apply for admission. When applications for admission exceed the number of spaces available, Semillas employs a lottery to determine admission. Spaces are allocated to form a student body that reflects the demographics of the region in which the school is located.

What's Next?

Parents who fill out an Interested Parent Form will be informed via phone and email about important dates of upcoming orientations where students will be selected to attend. If there are more students who want to enroll than there are spaces available, we will conduct a lottery. Priority will be given in the following order: 
  • Children of founding members will be given priority in admission although these will constitute a small percentage of total student enrollment.
  • Children of employees of Semillas and siblings of enrolled students.
  • Children considered educationally disadvantaged by the State of California because of their home public school.
  • All other applicants.

Once students are selected at the Enrollment Orientation, parents will fill out the "Interested Parent List" and our administrators will schedule an introductory interview with the parents and/or guardians of the prospective student(s). If the school, child and parents agree to continue with the enrollment process, the child will be formally registered as attending Semillas after submission of all necessary registration forms including up-to-date immunizations. If you have any questions regarding enrollment, please contact Maria Villamil at (323) 217-2775 or email us at
