How To Enroll


Enrollment Overview

Leadership is a public, tuition-free charter school. All students are welcome to apply. In the case that there are more applicants than spaces available, students are admitted through a random lottery with preference given to siblings.

Please note that students CANNOT apply to Leadership through the San Francisco Unified School District. Families wishing to apply to Leadership must submit an application directly to Leadership and follow Leadership’s enrollment process.

Prospective Transfer Students

Leadership accepts transfer applications throughout the year. Transfer students are considered on a case-by-case basis for enrollment, depending on whether the courses a student needs to be on track for graduation have space. Toward its graduation requirements, Leadership accepts transfer credit for courses with grades of C minus or better taken at other accredited high schools.

Students who submit applications will be admitted as space becomes available, in the order that their application was received.
