Our goal is to create a common high school application where students and their families will be able to:
Review all 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
That’s why CPS has revamped our entire high school application process to empower students and families to attend the school with the best environment, programs and activities for them. This new process has five primary steps.
