2019-20 GoCPS Applications are Now Available

Whether you apply on October 1st or December 14th, you have the same chances of receiving an offer to a program of your choice. It is a common misconception that applying early gives families an advantage in selection when, in fact, it does not. The selection process that generates offers for all applicants is run after the application process ends, so it is important that you take your time and use the full application window to plan and make good application decisions.

As a reminder, you can select and rank up to 20 Choice Programs and, if you are eligible, up to 6 Selective Enrollment Programs. You can receive a maximum of one single best offer from each category of school to which you apply, and you always have a guaranteed seat in the general education program of your neighborhood school whether you apply or not. Please be sure to rank your programs in your true order of preference; rank the program you want to attend most as your first choice, the program you want to attend next as your second choice, and so on. This is the order in which you will be considered for a seat.
