Post-deadline applications. The initial deadline has passed, but you can still apply to schools on Apply Philly Charter. If there are no seats available, you will be placed on a school’s waitlist. Schools will contact wait-list families in the event that there is availability for the 2019-2020 school year.
Neighborhood (Renaissance) Schools. Renaissance schools have a catchment area and some still have seats available for the 2019-20 school year. If you live within a participating Renaisance school's catchment, you can start the enrollment process by submitting an application through Apply Philly Charter. Find your neighborhood school here.
Make a decision. If you have been accepted, follow the school's enrollment process to secure your spot for 2019-2020.
Let schools know. If you have enrolled in a school for next year, let all other schools you applied to know that they can give your spot to another applicant.
Find out more. Information about all Philadelphia schools and open seats can be found at greatphillyschools.org. You can also contact the School District of Philadelphia to find out about school district options. Use the SDP School Finder to find your neighborhood public school.
