Application Process

Any student who has the interest or ability to work in a home study or independent study environment is welcome to apply to Orchard View School. We serve students in Sonoma County and the adjoining counties of Lake, Marin, Mendocino, Napa, and Solano. No inter-district transfer is needed. 
To inquire about our school, please contact Catherine Stroud, Director or call the OVS office at (707 823-4709.)
Open Enrollment for 2019-2020 ended on March 15th.
For the 2019-2020 school year, OVS is still accepting applications for grades 6 and 9-11.
During Open Enrollment: 
  • Download and submit an application (also available in the OVS office.)
  • The school will contact you to arrange a meeting and a tour.
  • Families will be notified of their enrollment status by March 29th. 
  • If the school receives more application than spaces are available a lottery will be held.
  • Current Orchard View students do not need to reapply
If a space becomes available after the open-application period it will be filled from the waitlist determined by the lottery. If there is no waitlist, the space will be filled from applications received after the open-application period. If more than one application exists, there will be a second lottery.
