Renaissance Charter School Reassignment
Renaissance Charter Schools are Philadelphia public schools that have an attendance boundary but are managed by a Charter company.
If your are finding that your home address connects to one of these Charter Schools, your Catchment School is a Renaissance Charter School. Families have the option of sending their child to a District School.
If, you need help in finding a different District School, we can help! Simply access the Renaissance Charter Reassignment Form below and let us find the next available District School for your child.

What You Need to Know About Renaissance Charter Schools
A Renaissance Charter School is a neighborhood school that is operated as a public charter school and can only enroll students from the neighborhood, also known as a catchment zone.
You may opt out of a Renaissance Charter School. The Office of Student Enrollment and Placement works with families to find a nearby district school with available space in the student’s grade level and with the student’s academic support program (special education, ESOL, behavioral health, etc.), if applicable.
Renaissance Charter Schools have enrollment limits and sometimes, schools reach this limit before all interested families can enroll their children. If this is the case, The Office of Student Enrollment and Placement will work with your family to find a nearby district school with available space in the student’s grade level and with the student’s academic support program (special education, ESOL, behavioral health, etc.) if applicable. If the Charter School is full, families can still apply and be placed on the school’s waiting list. However, you should still enroll your child into a District School until space becomes available at the Charter School.
The Office of Student Enrollment and Placement is eager to work with families to help find a School District of Philadelphia school. Specific school requests will not be honored. Our efforts are to locate the next closest school that has space in the grade your child is currently in. Before completing this application, please ensure you have the following:
