Lottery Process:

After each enrollment period closes, we will hold a lottery supervised by an outside agency to determine placement in classes and ranking on our waiting list.

Priority in the lottery will be given in the following circumstances:

  • Children of staff
  • Siblings of Albert Einstein students
  • Fluent German speaking children (up to 25% of space available)
  • Applicants residing within San Diego Unified School District boundaries
  • Applicants residing outside of the San Diego Unified School District boundaries and do not fall within any priority status will have the least priority for enrollment.

Families will be notified of enrollment status following each lottery.  Please be sure to write legibly on handwritten applications so that phone numbers and email address information is accurate.

Note: if you have accepted a position for a sibling of a current AEA student, the sibling must complete an enrollment packet prior to being enrolled at AEA.
