Over the years, we’ve heard from families about the importance of having a choice in selecting which high school provides the best match for their child’s needs. We’ve also heard that applying to high school can be frustrating and confusing. So this year, Chicago Public Schools has completely revamped its high school application process for students that will be freshman in the 2018-19 school year with the launch of GoCPS, a new website where students and families will be able to:
· Review school and program options in one place
· Rank these school and program choices based on their preferences
· Be matched with their highest possible choice for high school
The new application process will feature five key phases:
1. Subscribe (May – June 2018): Sign up to receive important updates and announcements
2. Research (June – July 2018): Conduct detailed research to find the best school for your child
3. Activate (August – September 2018): Create an account and access your student’s eligibility
4. Apply (October – December 2018): Complete applications with one system and one deadline
5. Match (January – June 2019): Get matched and receive high school offers
