Small Learning Communities in SLzUSD

San Lorenzo Unified has “choice-based” enrollment at the high school level.  This means a student can sign up to attend any one of our high school Small Learning Communities (SLCs) on any of our high school campuses, regardless of address. Students are encouraged to choose an SLC that best fits their talents and interests. All of the SLCs offer a rigorous, comprehensive college prep curriculum, but each does so through a different college and career theme. Students in SLCs still participate in activities and events such as: sports teams and games; school-wide rallies and assemblies; dances, proms and balls; the music program; the Advanced Placement (AP) program; the English Learner (EL) program; the Special Education program; and a wide assortment of student clubs and organizations. We invite you to view our video of our current SLC's. 

2020-2021 High School Enrollment

Due to Shelter in Place orders and our school district being closed to "in person" enrollment, we have moved to an "online enrollment process."  To enroll a new student into high school, please visit our district web page: and scroll to the bottom to the Quick Links area and choose the Enrollment (new students) link.  Create an account by entering your email address and picking a password that you will remember.  Start filling out the application.  The process will stop after you choose a high school and you will need to go to your email to confirm that you are filling out the application.  After confirmation, you can continue to fill out the application.  Upload all of the documents that are required (proof of residency, parents ID, birth certificate, up to date immunization record, and transcripts (if enrolling in 10th to 12th grade) or the last report card (if enrolling into 9th grade).
Please know that just because you picked a high school, enrollment into that high school will depend on space available.
After you finish the enrollment application, please email Olga Pineda at and leave your student's name; your phone number and the grade that your student will attend during the 20-21 school year.  You will receive an email or phone call to verify that all information has been completed and to ask a few questions about special programs that your student may need (special education, English classes for newcomers, 504 plans, special circumstances, etc.)
