How can your child attend Northridge Academy High School
A unique application process was developed and implemented to ensure equitable access to our school by students who would otherwise, in most cases, articulate from their middle schools to Granada Hills Charter, Monroe, Kennedy and Cleveland High Schools where overcrowding and/or a year-round calendar has created educational challenges. Applications to our school are due by November 30 each year, and because of overwhelming response from the communities we serve, a random drawing process is used to select students once a year. Our applicants are accepted with the following percentages; Cleveland 40%, Monroe 30%, Granada 15%, Kennedy 15%
Check eligibility (anytime)- Interested students can confirm they live in our attendance area by using the LAUSD SchoolFinder.
Applications are for the following school year than the current one we are in. We will be accepting applications for incoming 9th graders only (current 8th graders who will be a 9th grader for the Fall semester -next year).
Students whose home school is Cleveland, Granada Hills Charter, Kennedy and Monroe High School are eligible to apply.
It is possible that you may live in our attendance area yet not receive an application due to inaccurate records or postal delivery issues. In addition, it should be noted that applications are not mailed to the homes of current 8th graders attending a charter or private school. However, these students are still welcome to submit an application.
If for some reason you do not receive an application but you do reside in the NAHS attendance area, applications are also available online in English and Spanish. Applications are also available in the Main Office.
Note: Our school traditionally receives more applications from students than we can accept. Thus, we utilize a random lottery drawing to determine which students are accepted for enrollment. After all spots are filled, we continue to draw names in order to prioritize students on the waiting list.
