Virtual Information Meetings and campus tour videos are available online. Parents of applicants are highly encouraged to view these in order to discover the hallmarks of Elevate and hear a message from our Executive Director. No tours or meetings will be held in person due to COVID-19 restrictions, however, live Q&A sessions will be offered with the Executive Director.

Lottery priority is given in this order:

  3. Children of parents on Active Duty in the Armed Forces (not to exceed 40%)
  4. Students living within the district boundaries of San Diego Unified School District
