Application procedures for high school 

In a system with more than 100,000 high school students and more than 100 high schools, it can be difficult to find the school that fits your child’s needs. As CPS continues to offer more and more options for parents, we are confident that you will find a school that is the best match for your child.


For schools with a centralized application process that is managed by the Office of Access and Enrollment, you have the option of applying online or submitting a paper application. These school types are below:


CTE - College and Career Academies
IB High Schools
Magnet High Schools and Programs
Military Academies
Selective Enrollment High Schools


To apply to any other type of school, see the High School Guide for application instructions. The guide can be accessed online at www.cpsoae.org – click ‘School Guides.’ The application period for most high schools begins October 1st each year and ends in mid-December.


For more information about applying to high schools, visit the Office of Access and Enrollment website at www.cpsoae.org.
