As a part of the California public school system, Escondido Charter High School is excited to open its doors to all interested students. It is our goal to provide each parent with educational choice. With interest in ECHS at an all-time high, our school is currently receiving more requests for enrollment than we can accept. To ensure fairness in our selection process, ECHS follows state and local guidelines, which require us to hold a lottery whenever the number of applicants we receive exceeds our capacity. Applicants will be selected solely on the basis of the lottery results, in accordance with established priorities. 

Please note that the Traditional Learning and Flex Learning options hold two different lotteries. You will need to submit an application for each program you have chosen. Those who are interested in the Flex One-to-One option do not need to apply for the lottery. Please contact our Enrollment Coordinator, Yesenia Salas, directly at ysalas@echs.org

Students who live within the Escondido Union High School District boundaries will be given priority in the lottery. If your student is selected in the lottery, you will be required to submit two forms of proof of residence, to verify eligibility and priority status.  [ECHS Lottery Preferences
