CURRENT YEAR APPLICATIONS

Are you looking for a seat for the current school year? You can submit an application for the 2019-2020 school year; however, most schools do not have available seats. If you apply, you will be placed on a school’s waitlist and contacted in the event a seat becomes available. A few schools do have seats available right now. Look for a green check mark when selecting a school on our application and visit greatphillyschools.org to learn more about available seats at charter schools and other schools.

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.
