d.tech is a free public charter school that values diversity in race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic level, sexual orientation, physical ability, family structure and religion, and it encourages all students to apply who believe that d.tech's innovative program is a great fit for their high school years.

Process and Rules

California residents are eligible to apply to enroll at d.tech. Applicants must submit a complete application before the deadline of February 28.

When there are more applications than spots available, a lottery is run in early March. Families who enter the lottery may receive an offer to enroll, or a position on the waitlist. 

Those who reside in the San Mateo or Sequoia Union High School District must complete registration/address verification at the district office no later than February 28 to verify their priority lottery weighting. This is a prerequisite to enroll.

Families living outside those districts can also enroll by providing three proofs of CA residency to Design Tech.

Families who accept offers to enroll are informed of the enrollment process and must complete all steps by the deadlines, or risk having the offer rescinded.
