Students not selected for the remaining seats will be placed on a waiting list and will be contacted for enrollment if and when any seats become available.
Students who are currently enrolled are exempted from the lottery.
Palm Lane Global Academy will give admissions preference for the following cases:
-Students who reside in Anaheim Elementary School District
