This application asks you to give us contact information followed by a "get to know you" section. You will be asked to answer the prompt "Tell me about yourself and why you want to attend PAUSD Middle College High School." You can answer this prompt using the following formats:

Please prepare your answer to the prompt prior to filling out the application as your work may not be saved.
