Additional Admissions Info


Priority given to Alameda Residents...

According to the Nea charter, Alameda residents are given preference in admission to the school. Children currently enrolled in or residing in the catchment zone for district schools closest to ACLC are given particular priority. Alameda residents help support the school through their Measure A property taxes.

Children of staff and Board members, along with siblings of current learners are also given priority in admissions. 

If you live outside of Alameda...

While Alameda residents receive priority in the admission process, residents of neighboring communities have been admitted to all grade levels, depending on availability. 

If you are not a resident of Alameda, don't hesitate to apply. Many children from outside Alameda have had the opportunity to attend our school.

If you have questions specific to admissions, please email the Admissions Office or call (510) 409-5755.

If you have any questions specific to Nea's innovative K-12 program, please email our School Manager, or call (510) 748-4008.



Nea is a tuition-free, public charter school. 

Despite the remarkable quality of education Nea offers, there is no tuition and no fees are required to attend the school. 

The absence of tuition and fees is especially notable in light of the success that Nea high school graduates experience in gaining admission to 4-year colleges and universities. 

While not required, most of our parents choose to give to Nea's PTSA

Nea's PTSA raises tax-deductible funds towards vital academic and enrichment offerings at Nea.
