High School Selection

Academy Interest List Information 
Enrollment for the 2021-2022 school year at Canyon Crest Academy and San Dieguito High School Academy closed on March 1, 2021.
Due to potential attrition during the spring and summer, it is possible that there may be room to admit students to one or both schools in the future. Enrollment and capacity will be re-evaluated in late summer to determine if there is space available at either academy. Based upon this possibility, we are forming an interest list for eligible students who may be interested in attending San Dieguito High School Academy or Canyon Crest Academy during the 2021-2022 school year. Should space become available, students will be chosen from the interest list. If there are more students who want to enroll than available space can accommodate, a random lottery will be held to determine which students will be offered enrollment.
Please use the link below to add your information to the interest list. In the meantime, please be sure that you have enrolled in your boundary high school, La Costa Canyon or Torrey Pines HS, and have scheduled classes, as this will expedite transfers if enrollment opens at an academy school. Families will be notified by email in August should space become available at their academy school of interest. Updates will be posted to this webpage.
