BCS provides families with an innovative, empowering and results-oriented choice.

BCS is a free public charter school open to any student* in California in grades TK-8 and we welcome all children and families. Project-based learning, music, S.T.E.A.M., drama, social and emotional development — these are just a few of the reasons why BCS is a great choice!

Enroll Your Child

The Open Enrollment period for the 2024-25 school year begins on November 1, 2023 and ends on February 16, 2024. We are also still accepting applications for the current 2023-2024 school year. Submit an application for your child online through SchoolMint. You can also pick up a paper copy of the application at our school or download them from the links found on our How to Enroll page.

All applications submitted within our open enrollment period are eligible for the public enrollment lottery that is held in the winter prior to the upcoming school year. The lottery includes enrollment preferences for students who reside within the boundaries of the Los Altos School District, and for students eligible for Free and Reduced-Price Meals. See our Enrollment FAQs for more information.
