    CPS is compiling email lists for anyone interested in announcements regarding the 2019-2020 application season.  Typically CPS applications open the first Monday in October and close the 2nd Friday in December, but for non-CPS students interested in applying, CPS has had some pre-requisite testing done in September in past years.

    CPS Interested

    Hi, We have two kids in pre K at a catholic school. I have been applying to the PreK programs through CPS the last two years and was waitlisted both times. I logged in yesterday to apply to the 2019-2020 year for my older kid who will enter kindergarten. Somehow the screen does not advance past the first one where it asks you for current grade. Everything is grayed out and I cant select anything. Has anybody started applying for 2019-2020

      I had this problem for my children as well. I called the Office of Access and Enrollment, and they were able to make updates to the grayed out areas while I was on the phone.

    Hi there,

    We have applied for Preschool for both of our daughters and have been waitlisted every time. My youngest daughter will be attending preK4 in the fall. How can I be sure to get her a spot in CPS so that my kids can be at the same school?


    Thanks for your help.
