How to Apply

The application process at The Learning Castle and La Cañada Preparatory is truly unique to our methods of teaching. Since ours is primarily an individualized, educational program, we have the capability of admitting applicants within a technically closed school year, without disrupting classes or causing a hardship to the newly admitted student. Therefore, applications are accepted year round and if your situation can remain flexible and if an opening occurs, we might be able to admit your child during a current school year. If a space does become available during the year, you will be notified of your child's acceptance.


We invite you to complete and submit an online application, or you may download a paper copy and submit the form and payment by mail or in person.

If you wish to receive an information pack and/or schedule a tour, complete the Inquiry form or contact our admission's office at 818-952-8099.

Buddy Day

Once you have submitted an application, your child will be invited to attend morning classes.  During this time, your student will be evaluated.

Admissions Decisions

Re-enrollment for currently enrolled Learning Castle and La Cañada Preparatory students begins in early March of each year. At the conclusion of re-enrollment, any openings are made available to students on the new applicant list. We contact all applicant families by the end of April.
