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
Dr. Janice K. Jackson
Chief Education Officer, Chicago Public Schools
GoCPS uses a matching process that pairs students with their highest possible choice of school with available seats. Once matched, students receive a single-best offer* for non-selective enrollment schools.
Rank & Apply
*Please view each school’s profile page for a list of all factors considered. Search Schools.
*Eligible students who are matched with a selective enrollment school will receive a separate selective enrollment offer.
Similar models have been successfully deployed in other major school districts including New York City, Denver, New Orleans, Washington, D.C., Newark and Camden.
If you have additional questions or inquiries about Chicago Public Schools or the high school enrollment process, we’d love to hear from you.
