how to enroll

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

Enrolling your child can be done quickly and easily!

Once you’ve created your account on our SchoolMint platform, you can submit an application for your child in just a few steps:

  • Enter your child’s information (first time only)
  • Create an application in the appropriate school year
  • Gather and upload your documents (see below)

Paper applications are also available at the Bullis Charter School (BCS) offices at each campus or you can download them here: 23-24 BCS App | 24-25 BCS App. Applications should be submitted online, in person, or mailed to the BCS main office at 102 West Portola Avenue, Los Altos 94022.

NOTE: Submitting an application does not automatically guarantee admission to Bullis Charter School. Offers of enrollment are made to families in the Spring following our enrollment lottery. Parents will be notified of their child(ren)’s enrollment status via email or can login through SchoolMint to manage and view status.
