2020-21 Application opens SEPTEMBER 20, 2019

Through Apply Philly Charter, the process of applying to many Philadelphia charter schools is now simplified with one easy online application! Apply Philly Charter (applyphillycharter.org) is a website for families to apply to many participating charter schools for the upcoming 2020-21 school year.

The application for the 2020-21 school year officially opens on September 20th, the first day of the Philly High School Fair.  At this year's Fair, families can learn about high schools and apply to select schools using the Apply Philly Charter website. Be sure to visit the Apply Philly Charter application area at the High School Fair, complete with computers and tablet devices, to apply to select charter schools.

The application is simple! Create a family profile using an email or Google account with basic contact and grade level information for your child(ren). Once your profile is complete, you can select schools you want to apply to and submit your application electronically. 

For help completing your application, a toll-free support line will be available for assistance. The Apply Philly Charter website and telephone support is available in multiple languages, including English, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian and Vietnamese.
