Unity is nonsectarian in its programs, admissions policies, and all other operations; and does not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability

Admission to Oakland Unity High School is open to all students. We strive for a student population that reflects the diverse community of Oakland.

Applications submitted after the lottery and before the start of the school year are placed on the waiting list on a first-come first-serve basis, but after those names placed on the waiting list from the lottery.

Preference for admission is given to students with currently enrolled family members at Unity High School.

As of the 2016-17 school year, OUHS is involved in the Enroll Oakland Charters pilot, which provides a common enrollment process and platform for 90% of the Oakland charter school sector. As part of the EOC process and timeline, applications are accepted during a publicly advertised open enrollment period from November 1st to February 17th for enrollment in the following school year.  Following the open enrollment period each year applications are counted to determine whether any grade level has received more applications than availability.  In the event that this happens, OUHS holds a public random drawing between March 6th and March 17th to determine enrollment for the impacted grade level, with the exception of existing students (2nd year forward) who are guaranteed enrollment in the following school year. Preference in the public drawing shall be given to siblings of currently enrolled 9th, 10th, and 11th graders.
