Find a School
Start your journey at CPS by finding the school or program that's right for your child. Chicago students can either attend the general education program of their neighborhood school or apply to attend nearly any school in the city that they are eligible for and that has available seats.
Enroll in Your Neighborhood School
Students in grades K-12 have a guaranteed seat at the general education program in their neighborhood school. No GoCPS application is required. Please reach out to the school directly if you wish to enroll. Pre-K students are not guaranteed a seat in their neighborhood school and should apply through the Chicago Early Learning website.
