School Selection – Which Application Do I Fill Out?

Which Application Should be Filled Out …

  • District Students apply through their Parent & Family Portal.  The student account is already linked to all their academic records which includes grades, attendance, behavior and standardized test scores. When you fill out the application, everything tied to your account will be sent automatically.  You will however be responsible for uploading an essay, where applicable.
    If your student/child IS a School District of Philadelphia Student this year, but was NOT a School District of Philadelphia student last year, he/she won’t be set up in the system so you’ll have to send hard copies of ALL academic records to each Special Admission School.
  • Non-District Students have to submit an online application in addition to uploading all of the necessary records, in order to be considered. The application is through a different portal and you should be prepared with electronic copies of your academic records which include Grades, Attendance, Behavior and Standardized Test Score Results.
