Applying to High School

Accessing High School Results

Round 1 high school results will be released March 29, 2019, between 5:00 p.m. and 11:59 p.m. If your student applied online, results will be posted in their online GoCPS account. If they applied on paper, a notification letter will be sent to the primary address on their application via U.S. mail. In addition, an online GoCPS account has been opened for each paper applicant, and their results will be posted there as well.
