Any student in the State of California is eligible to attend Ararat Charter School. However, all admissions for incoming students are conducted via a random, public lottery. California charter school law requires a lottery whenever requests by students to enroll in a charter school exceed the number of available seats.
Ararat Charter School’s rigorous standards-based approach is in high demand by parents looking for a public school where their children have the opportunity to learn Armenian and Spanish.
In recent years, we have received approximately 600 applicants for the 56 places typically available each year.
