CPS’ Open Enrollment Period

CPS’ Open Enrollment Period for Out-of-District Students Begins April 1

Cincinnati Public Schools welcomes out-of-district students to apply online during April for open seats in our schools.
Applications for open enrollment in CPS will be accepted for the 2017-18 school year April 1 - 30, 2017.

CPS’ Board of Education adopted an Interdistrict Open Enrollment policy in January 2013, allowing students who live outside the CPS district's boundaries — but in Ohio — to enroll in CPS’ schools without paying tuition.

Students who live within CPS’ boundaries have priority for enrollment before out-of-district students are considered. Students applying under Open Enrollment must meet any entrance criteria required by a CPS school (such as an entrance exam or an audition).
