Enrollment Lottery is CLOSED. We are now accepting Waiting List Applications for the 2022-2023 school year.

Waiting List 

As a part of the California public school system, Heritage Flex Academy is excited to open its doors to all interested students who are residents of San Diego County or an adjacent county; (Orange County or Riverside County.) It is our goal to provide each parent with educational choice. With interest in Heritage Flex Academy at an all-time high, our school is currently receiving more requests for enrollment than we can accept. To ensure fairness in our selection process, Heritage Flex Academy follows state and local guidelines, which require us to hold a lottery whenever the number of applicants we receive exceeds our capacity. Applicants will be selected solely on the basis of the lottery results, in accordance with established priorities.

All students must be residents of San Diego County or an adjacent county; (Orange County or Riverside County.) Students who live within the Escondido Union School District boundaries will be given priority in the lottery. If your student is selected in the lottery, you will be required to submit two forms of proof of residence, to verify eligibility and priority status.  

NOTE: Falsifications, misrepresentations, and omissions will disqualify your application. All information you provide will remain confidential and not be shared with any other person/entity for any purpose. 

To apply for the lottery, please click on the “Lottery Application” button at the top of the page and fill out the online application. 

  • The lottery application period opens in October 25, 2021.
  • The lottery application period closes on Friday, February 4, 2022, at 4:00 PM.

The lottery will be held during the Heritage K-8 Charter School Board meeting on Wednesday, February 23, 2022, in the Multi Purpose Room at Heritage Elementary located at 1855 East Valley Parkway, Escondido, CA 92027. You do not need to be present to participate. You will be notified of the lottery results by mail following the meeting. Families who receive a lottery number low-enough to be admitted to the school will be invited to a mandatory meeting on March 9, 2022.

If your student does not receive a low-enough lottery number to be admitted to the school at this time, his/her name will be placed on a wait list (in the order in which his/her number was drawn). That wait list will be used to fill any vacancies that may occur during the school year.

Providing the highest level of service is important to us. Our Enrollment Coordinator, Mrs. Olivia Relatores, will be available to assist you as you navigate through this process. Olivia Relatores can be reached at:
