How to Enroll

How to Enroll

Enrollment at Peralta happens through the Oakland Unified School District (OUSD). OUSD enrollment information and application can be found here. The on-time application window for the 2024-2025 school year runs from December 1, 2023 through February 9, 2024 and offers will be sent to families in March 2024. Families are encouraged to apply during the OUSD on-time application window.

Each year, Peralta's 63rd Street campus welcomes 2-3 new classes of kindergarteners and new students in grades 1-5, as space allows.
Peralta also offers a TK class, which will be onsite on our campus for the 2024-25 school year. To learn more about the TK program, visit

If you are interested in applying for the 2024-2025 school year, we hope you will attend one of our online information sessions and join us for the in-person tour day in January 2024.
