New Student Enrollment Now Open for Laguna Beach Unified School District

LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. — The Laguna Beach Unified School District (LBUSD) online enrollment application for the 2023-24 academic year is now open for new students entering transitional kindergarten (TK) or kindergarten through grade 12. 

Transitional Kindergarten is for four-year-olds who turn five between September 2, 2023, and April 2, 2024. For the full-day kindergarten program, students must be five years old on or before September 1, 2023, to enroll for the 2023-24 school year. New families can visit the Top of the World and El Morro elementary schools on April 26, 2023, at 1:45 p.m. or May 4, 2023, at 6 p.m. for campus tours. Elementary school orientation for parents and guardians will be virtual via Zoom on April 27 from 6 to 7 p.m.

In addition to the educational programs offered during the academic calendar year, LBUSD offers full-day expanded learning opportunities for all students during winter, spring and summer breaks when school is not in session. 

The Expanded Learning Opportunity Program (ELOP) is offered year-round in partnership with the Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach for students in grades TK-6. During the school year, the program provides afterschool enrichment at the Laguna Canyon Clubhouse through 6 p.m. and full-day camps during the spring, winter and summer breaks. ELOP is free of cost for students identified as English Learners, students from economically disadvantaged homes, foster youth and students experiencing homelessness. Learn more here

The district also offers a summer enrichment program, LEAD, for students in grades K-11, who will be incoming students in grades 1-12. LEAD allows students to learn, enrich, advance, and discover by exploring a new interest or passion. Courses are free of cost for all current and continuing LBUSD students. Classes address academic topics, social-emotional wellness, physical fitness, the arts, technology, and many other high-interest areas. Course catalogs and details for summer 2023 are available at

LBUSD provides traditional academic summer school interventions for current students referred by their teacher to address gaps in knowledge and skills. The first school day for the 2023-24 academic year is August 24. To enroll, visit
