Renaissance (neighborhood) charter schools accept applications on a rolling basis. If your assigned neighborhood school is a charter school, you can still apply for the 2024-2025 school year by submitting a post-deadline application. Eligible applicants will be offered admission on a first come, first served basis based on seat availability. Most other schools do not have space for this school year and you will be placed on the waitlist. Visit GreatPhillySchools for a list of schools with open seats for the current school year. Please check which participating schools are accepting current year applications here.
The Family User Policy Manual was created to provide parent friendly information on the technical and operational systems for the Apply Philly Charter and related topics pertaining to charter school.
