Open Enrollment Process

The Atascadero Fine Arts Academy is excited to share our 4th-8th grade campus with families in Atascadero Unified School District and throughout San Luis Obispo County. Our 'Open Enrollment' period takes place February 1st - March 15th. All interested families are highly encouraged to submit enrollment forms by the March 15th deadline. If enrollment interest exceeds the number of spaces available at each grade level, a blind lottery takes place and all families will be notified in April. Please call our office at 805.460.2500 with questions.

Please take a few minutes to watch the following video, "Your Students, Your Schools: Atascadero Fine Arts Academy" designed by the San Luis Obispo County Office of Education a few years ago.

Alan Pietsch, one of the founding faculty members, created this documentary "A Jewel of a School" with partnership from our supportive PTSA. This video helps tell the story of how our unique school came to be, the impact it's had on students over the years, and the value of arts education in general. We hope you enjoy this in-depth look into our wonderful school.
