Attention 8th Grade Parents: HS Applications Deadline Approaching

The High school application window has been extended to Thursday, December 8th at  5:00pm. If you have not created an account and applied please contact me so that we can schedule a meeting to do so ASAP.  Please maximize your chances of acceptance by applying to any/all schools that your child is eligible to attend.  If you DO NOT apply to any/all eligible schools you are forfeiting the chance of admission.  Your child can only potentially receive a maximum of two offers. One for a selective enrollment school and one for a choice(non-selective program). Every student is automatically eligible for a seat in the general education program at their neighborhood high school (based upon your residential address) 

Parents that are fairly certain your child is going to attend a  Parochial/Catholic school or leave the district all together for Fall 2023.  I highly recommend still applying to any/all interested CPS schools by the above mentioned DEADLINE. Offers will be issued typically around the 2nd week of March.  

Account creation requires your child(ren) CPS ID# you can do that at this link GoCPS account setup

PLEASE NOTE: Applications are not considered complete until you receive an email from GoCPS confirming your submitted status.

The HSAT results have been posted in your child(ren) GoCPS account if your child took the October test.  The results lists your child(ren) percentile score which then has to be converted into points please use this rubric to calculate your points. Selective enrollment scoring rubric  This scoring rubric is for selective enrollment programs ONLY. The CTE programs at Jones you must use this scoring rubric Jones CTE scoring rubric

As always if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me or 773.534-4533
