Whitney HS Admissions

2023-24 Whitney High School Application Window is now closed.


The ABC Unified School District consists of three comprehensive high schools and one academic magnet high school.  All four high schools provide excellent university preparation programs for students. Graduates from each of the district’s high schools are admitted to prestigious colleges and universities of their choice.


Whitney High School is the academic magnet school in ABC Unified School District. Students interested in attending Whitney High School are required to adhere to the application process.


Current Grade 6 students who are ABCUSD residents and attend ABCUSD are all given the writing and academic assessments.


Current 7th through 11th grade students who live within the ABCUSD attendance boundaries may indicate an interest in attending Whitney by submitting an application.  According to the District policy, admission is determined by student scores on the designated writing test, and an academic assessment of Reading and Math.


After test results have been compiled, invitations are mailed only to eligible students who qualify to enroll at Whitney.  Invitees have five days to indicate their intent to register. Families who have planned vacation during June 2023, please make arrangements to contact Whitney High School during your absence.  Information can only be given directly to the parent/guardian of a student. Students not selected for this year’s admission are encouraged to submit another Whitney High School application during the open enrollment period next year.

Completed applications, along with two proofs of residency, must be mailed to the ABCUSD District Office - Academic Services Testing Office (16700 Norwalk Blvd., Cerritos, CA 90703) and be postmarked by March 3, 2023. Hand delivered applications will not be accepted. (Certified mail is recommended). Proof of residency documents showing the name and address of the parent or legal guardian within the school district include current utility statements, mortgage or rental statements, pay stubs, or correspondence from a government agency. Driver’s License and bank statements will not be accepted. ABCUSD has the right to request additional residency documents, as needed. For questions, please email  [email protected]
