In the fall of eighth grade, students begin the process of identifying which high school to attend. Some may attend their neighborhood high school; others apply to many of the district’s small high schools or specialized programs which accept students on a space available basis or through a competitive application process.
Students attending their neighborhood high school are automatically enrolled based on their address; they are registered in the spring.
Students applying to specialized programs are enrolled upon acceptance but must register according to instructions in their acceptance letters.
Parents are encouraged to learn about the wide variety of high school choices available throughout the district. Important enrollment information is available from the Sacramento City Unified School District (SCUSD).

For students who will be entering grades 9 through 12 next fall:
Online Open Enrollment begins 8am on Tuesday, January 10, 2017 through 5pm on Tuesday, January 24, 2017
For middle school students living within the district defined boundaries for CKM, school counselors will visit the district’s middle schools to enroll eighth grade students for their freshmen year.
Non-freshmen students may be enrolled at CKM’s main office on campus. Parents are strongly encouraged to enroll their students as soon as possible once they locate within the school’s attendance area.
Students living outside the CKM attendance area
For students living outside CKM’s attendance area and SCUSD defined boundaries, the school accepts students on a space available basis through either an intra-district or inter-district permit. Call SCUSD’s Student Hearing and Placement Office (916) 643-2175 for assistance.
The enrollment process pertains to prospective students (freshmen or other new students). Once a student has been enrolled at CKM, only students on inter- or intra-district permits may be required to repeat the process for subsequent academic school years.
All prospective students for a specialized program must complete the open enrollment process regardless of where they live. In addition to the open enrollment application, students/parents must complete a specialized high school program application unique to each program.
