We are delighted that you are visiting our website and hope you find answers to all your admissions questions. We are here to help you through the admission process. After familiarizing yourself with how your family can join our community, we invite you to explore other areas of the High Tech High website to discover more about our K-12 schools. 

High Tech High schools strive to accommodate all students who apply for admission. However, because applications for admission exceed the number of spaces available, HTH uses a zip-code based computerized lottery to determine admission. Spaces are allocated to form a student body that reflects the demographics of the region in which the school is located.

How to Apply


1. Application

Complete an online application for admission HERE between October 1, 2020 and February 5, 2021 in order to be entered into the lottery for admission. High Tech High schools conduct our admissions process through School Mint. School Mint is accessible here. Once you apply, you will receive email confirmation that your application has successfully been submitted. Please be sure to save this confirmation email for your personal records. You can also log in to your account at any time to check on the status of your application. If you prefer to use a paper application, please visit one of our schools to pick one up from the HTH Admissions Office.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are applying for Kindergarten, your child must turn 5 years old on or before September 1st (EC Section 48000[a]) in order to apply for Kindergarten. We will not make any exceptions to this rule.

2. Submit Verification (If Applicable)


Siblings of current HTH students are given a preference in the lottery. We require verification of sibling status via the application.

National School Lunch Program 

If you indicated on your student’s application that they qualify for free/reduced lunch, you will need to email an approval letter from your school district as verification of their eligibility or upload it with your application. Verification can be emailed to admissions@hightechhigh.org.

3. Attend a Tour and/or Information Session (Optional)

Tours are optional, but we highly encourage you and your family to attend a tour or come to an informational meeting. The best way to learn about HTH and see if it is a good option for your child is to see them in person.

To register for a tour please visit  our tours webpage.
