Everest Value School is open to all students eligible to attend, regardless of abilities, disabilities, or where they live. If the number of students applying to Everest Value School exceeds the number of enrollment slots available, California Charter laws state that a public lottery must be held where students are placed on an enrollment waiting list to determine which students will have the opportunity to attend.
Spots are not guaranteed, but you do not have to be present for the drawing to be accepted to the school.
Siblings of students currently enrolled in Everest Value School have priority on the waitlist and will be offered a space before non-siblings during the lottery. Click here for common Application FAQs.

Parent Induction Program
Before attending a Everest Value School for the first time, a student must be admitted to the school. The admission process includes a parent induction program and a student orientation. A parent’s decision to not attend in no way impacts the student’s admission or enrollment.
The induction program is an educational program designed to facilitate the parent’s acceptance of the expectations by Everest Value School. The first step is a conference with the school’s principal or another administrator prepared to undertake the role. In the conference the school’s expectations for both the student and parent are outlined and the range of parent support opportunities is presented. The parent is encouraged to identify the problems or obstacles that he or she may fear. The principal guides the parent through possible solutions to these hindrances. The conference concludes with an invitation to the parent to make a commitment to support the core values and to cooperate with the school in the formation of the student in these values.
The induction program continues at each parent gathering. At these meetings parents come to understand more of their role in assisting in their children’s education. Students will join the parent for the conclusion of the conference and also make a commitment to the core values.
Critical to the success of any school is the willingness of the students to do the work of the school. Everest Value School proposes to conduct a program to help students not only be willing participants in the school activities, but also to embrace the five core values.
The program begins with a specially designed student orientation. The orientation demonstrates the value of school in the life of the student. The orientation is constructed to help form the affective dimension of the students and to suggest motivations that are meaningful to students.
The orientation is conducted during the same time frame as the parent induction program. In this way the student should be prepared to sign a commitment to the core values before actually beginning in school.
Everest Value School is committed to providing a learning environment that is free from unlawful discrimination and harassment. The school prohibits discrimination and harassment based on individual’s actual or perceived sex, sexual orientations, gender, (including gender identity), ethnic group identification, race ancestry, age or on the basis of a person’s association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics. This nondiscrimination policy covers admission or access to school programs and activities. The lack of English language skills will not be a barrier to admission to or participation in school program or activities.
