Cleveland Charter High School

Ninth Grade Orientation

All 9th grade students and their parents/guardians are invited to attend Ninth Grade Orientation on August 9 or 10 at 8:30 AM.

If your child is enrolled in the Magnet or SAS program, orientation will be on August 9.

If your child is enrolled in AOAT, GAIMS, ISLA, STEM, SPED, or any other program not listed, orientation will be on August 10. 

Please make sure you come to your assigned date, as there will be program-specific information and breakout sessions on those dates.

If you do not know which program your child is enrolled in please call (818)885-2324.

Orientation will begin at 8:30 AM in the Multipurpose Room (MPR). Students will have the opportunity to learn about the programs and opportunities available at Cleveland. Students may purchase PE clothes and obtain lockers prior to the start of school. 

* To get a locker prior to the start of school, students must bring a completed federal meal application form or printed receipt of online submission.  You do not have to qualify for the meal program. We ask that you simply complete the document. All other students will receive their lockers during the regular locker distribution a few weeks into the fall semester.

Paper applications will be available at Orientation, but we encourage parents to compete online applications if possible.
