How do I apply?

Students apply for high school through the GoCPS process. The details of this process can be found on the GoCPS website. As of May 31, 2019, this GoCPS process for the 2019-20 school year has ended. Students still have the option to try to transfer to an Acero high school from their currently assigned school beginning July 1, 2019. More information on the transfer process can be found here.

 

What are the requirements to attend an Acero high school?

Applicants must reside in the City of Chicago. If a student is found to be admitted using a false address, this could result in disenrollment. Otherwise, there are no admission requirements and students are seated through a student selection and lottery process administered by GoCPS.
