How to Schedule and Apply
 
Follow the steps below to apply online (adapted from cpsoae.org):
STARTING OCTOBER 1ST.
 
  • Current eighth graders received an Eligibility Letter that contains a Personal Identification Number (PIN) for the online process. See your counselor for this letter.
  • Go to the online application website, www.apply.cps.edu, click "Apply Online" under Step 1 and open your account.
  • Starting October 1st at 9 a.m., you can schedule your child's test date, time, and location. NOTE: Your child will only take one Selective Enrollment test, even if you plan to apply to more than one school. Print the test confirmation and keep it.
  • After you successfully schedule your  test, return to the online site between October 1st and December 11, 2015, by 11:59 p.m. to APPLY. Click 'Apply' to identify the schools where you want your child to apply.
  • REMEMBER:  This is a two-step process:  (1) SCHEDULE, then (2) APPLY. If you only schedule your child's exam, and do not select the schools to which you want to apply, your child cannot be considered for enrollment.
  • Print the confirmation page for your records -- this will be the only documentation you have that lists the schools to which you applied.
  • You will receive an email confirmation when your application is received by our office. The email confirmation will confirm that your application has been successfully submitted.
  • Please call (773) 553-2060 with questions about your PIN number, test scheduling, and applications.
