PLEASE NOTE:You can only apply to ONE of the six selective enrollment schools on your original application. I highly recommend you choose 1 of the top 3 schools you originally selected as the school will know where you ranked them.

6 pm on Friday, May 8th. Applicants will be able to submit their Application Packages via an online portal.

The link to the online portal will go live on the Principal Discretion page starting at 9 am on April 27th. Detailed instructions will be provided on the online portal on how to submit the Application Packages online.
