See NON-RESIDENT APPLICATION for more information.
CARPENTER COMMUNITY CHARTER (CCC) ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ADMISSIONS
Who can apply for admission to Carpenter Community Charter (CCC)?
Carpenter Community Charter (CCC) is a highly-desired neighborhood school. Primary enrollment preference is given to students who reside in CCC’s attendance area (see LAUSD school finder.) Non-resident students are encouraged to apply and will be admitted by Non-Resident Waitlist Lottery if space is available. CCC also provides for the education of non-resident students based on the LAUSD’s Desegregation and Integration Policies.
How do I find out if CCC is my neighborhood school?
The LAUSD School finder will help you find your neighborhood school LAUSD school finder.
Do not apply as a resident if you reside outside of school boundaries. If a question about your residence arises, we have the responsibility to check. This may be done by requesting additional address verification documents, and actions such as, but not limited to, calling apartment managers or conducting a home visit at the address you have provided. Carpenter is now equipped with address verification technology and can determine, with high probability, whether you have provided a false address prior to enrollment. If, after enrollment, it is found that you falsified your address, we are required to transfer your child out immediately. This would be very difficult for your child.
Students applying as residents MUST be residents within Carpenter’s District-defined boundaries at the start of the school year.
When can I visit CCC?
School Tours are open to all prospective families and will be conducted on January 11th, 2013 and again on March 14th, 2013. Tours will begin in the school auditorium promptly at 8:15 am. Reservations are not required.
