You’ve explored schools online, found your favorite and already know your top choice? It’s time to apply! You may choose up to three schools per school district for each child.

Tips before applying online

  1. Review the instructions on the application before starting. If your child qualifies for free and reduced price lunch, you may need financial information.
  2. You will not be able to save your form and return to it later, so you will need to complete it all at once.
  3. Use the scroll feature to return to fields and make changes. Using the back arrow on your browser may cause you to lose information.
  4. Review your answers carefully before submitting.
  5. After you complete your application, remember to download and save a copy of it. Please do not mail a copy if you have already submitted an online application.
  6. Apply by no later than March 15 at 5 p.m.


Mailing or delivering your application

Print out your application and postmark it by March 15 or deliver directly to the school districts you are applying to. Check here for a list of addresses. 

If you wish to apply in person, and the deadline falls on a weekend or school holiday, drop the application off at the school district office of your preferred school by 5 p.m. on the prior school day.
