Start the Application Process
Before enrolling, please review our program options. We are currently enrolling students in both the Personalized Learning Academy and Virtual Learning Academy. You will be prompted to select a program in the enrollment application.
Sage Oak Charter Schools proudly serves Southern California students in 8 counties.
Applications are considered complete when enrollees have submitted an application filled out in its entirety and that application is signed by the parent or guardian along with the following documents according to the student’s grade level.
All students must provide:
- A valid birth certificate, passport, or other evidence of birth date.
- Proof of Residency. An example of acceptable proof of residence would be a utility bill dated within 3 months.
- An immunization record OR Non-Immunization Confirmation form.
In accordance with charter law, students may not be concurrently enrolled in this school and any other private or public school. It is not necessary to obtain an inter/intra-district transfer from your local school district to attend Sage Oak.
Before a student can be enrolled in Sage Oak, a Master Agreement, an Acknowledgment of Responsibilities, and other school policy forms must be signed at an enrollment meeting with an assigned teacher. Students must follow current adopted standards, participate in state and local assessments, and be assigned to and partner with a credentialed teacher. These policies and procedures are followed to ensure our compliance and therefore our sustainability.
Admission may be subject to an enrollment lottery depending on the number of applications received in accordance with our board-adopted lottery policy. In addition, admission in Sage Oak Charter Schools is dependent on the school receiving funding for each student.
Students are not officially enrolled in Sage Oak Charter Schools until they have met with a teacher and signed a Master Agreement Acknowledgement of Responsibilities (MA/AoR). It is recommended that students remain enrolled in their current school until the MA/AoR has been signed.
Applications should be completed using a laptop or desktop computer. We do not recommend using a tablet, phone, or other smart devices to complete the online application. Enrollment documents may be submitted online, uploaded through SchoolAdmin, mailed to the Redlands office, or brought into the Redlands office.
Student Age Requirements
In accordance with California State Law, a student’s grade level placement will be based on their date of birth. Students will be placed in the appropriate grade using this chart. A student will be eligible for kindergarten enrollment if their birth date is on or before September 1st of the school year they wish to apply.
Students entering TK/Kindergarten, please review the following information:
- TK is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program
- A child is eligible for TK if he or she turns five between September 2nd- June 2nd.
- Students who are age-eligible for Kindergarten are allowed to choose TK if their 5th birthday is between June 1 and September 1.
Children who are age-eligible to attend kindergarten, but choose to enroll in TK will be asked to review and sign the Kindergarten Continuance Form in the spring. This will verify that the parent/guardian agrees to have his/her child continue in kindergarten for one additional year. Have you met the requirements for enrollment? Are you ready to begin the process?
