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 are accepted year-round.
If the number of applicants is more than the available spots for the upcoming school year, a lottery is held. Those not admitted through the lottery are placed on a waiting list according to the order the names are drawn. The cut-off deadline for the lottery is March 1st, and the lottery is held at a later date, no later than April 15th.
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. We currently have space at both our 9th and 10th grades.
