ACCESS and PCHS enrollment for Private School Students Who Will Not Attend a CUSD School in Fall 2018


Private schools students who reside within the boundaries of CUSD and wish to attend ACCESS or PCHS for summer school need to download all paperwork and have it signed by their private school academic advisor. Once the paperwork is complete, students must have their referral signed by the CUSD Summer School Coordinator.


To obtain CUSD signature: Completed packets need to be delivered to the front desk at the CUSD Education Center, 33122 Valle Road, San Juan Capistrano. Once signed, these packets will be sent to either PCHS or ACCESS for processing. You must allow for a 24 hour turnaround. CUSD staff will not be available to sign forms on a drop-in basis.


All PCHS applications must be turn into CUSD by Monday, May 21, 2018 in order to ensure they are signed and received by PCHS or ACCESS in time.


Note that PCHS may close registration early if all courses are full. CUSD cannot guarantee enrollment in courses even if paperwork is returned by May 21. They have closed registration early the past two years.
