Join us - Rockets!
Norton Science and Language Academy currently offers a Transitional Kindergarten through Eleventh grade program. Enrollment with 12th grade begins in the 2024-2025 school year.
NSLA requires all parents who desire admission to NSLA to complete an application.  Applications and informational materials are available in English and Spanish as requested.  Only completed applications will be considered.
  • NSLA accepts applications throughout the year for all existing grade levels. However, admission periods for any semester will be determined by NSLA.
  • In the event that any grade level has received more applications than availability, NSLA will hold a public random drawing (or “lottery”) three times a year to determine admission for the impacted grade level, with the exception of existing students, who are guaranteed admission in the following school year. Admission preferences in the case of a public random drawing shall be given to the following students in the following order:
  • Siblings of students admitted to or attending NSLA      
  • Children of LCER salaried-regular employees. 
  • Children of all other LCER employees (employed in the position for a minimum of two consecutive school years).
  • Students from San Bernardino County and contiguous counties only.
  • All other applicants.
NSLA and SBCSS agree to adhere to the requirements related to admission preferences as set forth in Education Code Section 47605(e)(2)(B)(i)-(iv), including that each admission preference shall be approved by SBCSS at a public hearing. 
Whenever the number of applicants in any of the priority groups exceeds the grade level capacity, students will be admitted by public lottery as required by state and federal law. Applicants are held in abeyance until the lottery is conducted. Applicants are considered according to the priorities described above only, and not by date of application except that applications must be completed by published deadlines for consideration during any lottery period.

The application listed above can be filled out digitally using the latest version of Adobe Reader. 
You may turn your application(s) in, in any of the following ways:
  • Print it and bring it to the school office. 
  • Fax it using the fax number (909) 386-7855
  • Scan and email it to or
