If you are interested in attending El Camino High School, you must first apply and be accepted to the program.

How to Apply:

Attending a VUSD school right now?  - Parents need to contact their counselor at home school and let them know that the student would like to attend ECHS. The counselor will prepare a packet for placement. Placement is every Thursday. Please give plenty of time for counselors to prepare packets.

Not a current VUSD student?  Contact Tera Shrum

If you are accepted you will receive an email from the El Camino office staff. You will get instructions on how and when to drop your current school. You will be notified of who will be your ECHS teacher. The teacher will contact you directly to set up a Master Contract meeting. This is a parent, student and teacher meeting that will determine the 4+ core classes at El Camino. 

If you are not accepted and are a VUSD student, the home school will contact you. If you are out of district, the ECHS office will contact you.

Once students are accepted to El Camino, they will need to apply to Ventura College. This must be completed before you can meet with your ECHS counselor. More information on this will be provided in an acceptance email.
