Lifeline Education Charter School is a TK-12th grade charter school designed to provide an alternative choice to the traditional public school system and focuses on meeting the educational needs of students and families who live in and around Compton and surrounding areas. Although the majority of our pupils are from the community of Compton, Lifeline is open to all residents of California and typically admits students from various parts of Los Angeles County.


Lifeline will continue to focus its resources and efforts on the “at risk” student population and the inclusion of those students who have not been able to obtain an education that challenges their academic, social, and moral potential through traditional sources of public or private education. Lifeline Education Charter School will continue to be a place where the community is welcome and the students feel privileged.

Enrollment Information Contacts


Governing Law: Admission requirements, if applicable. Education Code Section 47605(b)(5)(H). Lifeline Education Charter School operates as a public tuition-free school and complies with all laws establishing minimum and maximum age for public school attendance. No student is denied admission to the school based on the characteristics listed in Education Code Section 220 (actual or perceived disability, gender, nationality, race or ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic that is contained in the definition of hate crimes set forth in Section 422.55 of the Penal Code or association with an individual who has any of the aforementioned characteristics). Admission to the Charter School requires a commitment from both students, parents, guardians and/or other concerned adults who may be directly responsible for the child’s development, i.e., counselors, social workers.


If the number of pupils who wish to attend the charter school exceeds the school’s capacity, attendance, except for existing pupils of the charter school, shall be determined by a public random drawing. If there are more eligible applicants than available spaces in a class, then a public lottery will be conducted in early August. Notices will be posted on site and mailed home setting forth the time and place for the public random drawing. A name will be drawn for each vacancy per grade level that exists and each applicant whose name is drawn will be offered admission.


If there are names remaining after all vacancies have been filled, a waiting list will be developed. The remaining names will be drawn and placed on the waiting list in the order they were drawn. If a vacancy arises before the commencement of the school year or during the school year, the individual on the waiting list with the lowest number assignment will be offered admission and then removed from the waiting list.


Lifeline Education Charter School will exempt from the lottery, currently enrolled students, the siblings of currently enrolled students and the children of the school’s founders and teachers (not to exceed more than 10% of total student enrollment). Preference shall be extended to pupils who reside in the Compton Unified School District at a ratio of 2:1, unless otherwise agreed to with the authorizer. If an application is received after the application period has passed, the applicant’s name is added to the waiting list behind the names of the applicants who timely applied.
