Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Vistamar community. We are excited to get to know you and your family throughout the admission process.
 At Vistamar, we pride ourselves on providing students with a challenging and engaging college preparatory high school experience. A key part of providing that experience lies in having a school community that is reflective of the diversity that characterizes the Los Angeles region.

We look for independent thinkers who are unafraid to challenge the status quo. The types of students who work hard in high school but place equal value on living healthy and balanced lives. Students who engage in the world with true purpose.

This area of our website will guide you through our application process. Here you may submit an inquiry, register to attend our admission events and tours, download application forms, view our easy-to-follow steps to apply, and, if necessary, look into our need-based moderated tuition program (Vistamar’s improved take on financial aid).

We’re here to help and thrilled to meet you soon.
