Fall 2015 Selective Enrollment High School Open House Schedule

Look at those cars!

Look at those cars!

The open house schedule is posted.  I have them grouped by weekend.  I know these schools get long lines of applicants.  Is there any policy about bringing 7th graders?  I’d like my kid to get a sense of what this is all about (possibly as study motivation.)   It’s hard to get a kid excited about a conceptual school, ya know?

The official CPS link to it is here, if you want a nice printable version.

SEHS Test dates

The Selective Enrollment High Schools admissions exam will be offered on the following dates for the 2016-2017 school year:

November 14, 2015* Early scores before app deadline
November 21, 2015* Early scores before app deadline
December 12, 2015
January 23, 2016
January 30, 2016
*Students who take the test in November 2015 will receive their test results and final point scores prior to the December 11th application deadline. (CPSO note: this allows your child greater understanding of their scoring “position” before they rank their schools and can help set expectations earlier in the process.)
The test will be offered at four sites:  King College Preparatory High School, Lane Tech High School, Lindblom Math and Science Academy, and Young Magnet High School

MAP Test dates for non-CPS Students:

CPS will continue to use the Northwestern Evaluation Association Measures of Academic Progress (NWEA MAP) as the uniform assessment for all students applying to CPS programs with academic requirements for the 2016-2017 school year.  (To receive updates about the application process for the 2017-2018 school year, click here.)

For students who do not currently attend a CPS school but intend to apply to grades 5-9 for CPS schools/programs with academic requirements, the NWEA MAP will be offered free of charge. The NWEA MAP is used by CPS to determine eligibility for selective enrollment elementary and high schools and other high schools with academic requirements, including college and career selective academies, International Baccalaureate high schools, magnet high schools and military academies.

For non-CPS students who registered for the test by September 11th, the test will be administered on Oct. 17, 18, 24, and 25, 2015.  There will be one additional test date in January 2016 for students who register for the NWEA exam, or you registered after September 11, 2015. Click here to download and print the paper registration form and FAQs regarding the process. For more information, click here.

IMPORTANT!  In addition to submitting the NWEA registration form, students who test in January MUST submit paper applications before the Dec. 11, 2015, deadline for the schools of their choice. Paper applications can be accessed here, beginning October 1, 2015, at 9 a.m.

After your child takes the second NWEA exam, the Office of Access and Enrollment will contact you on January 22, 2016, via email and robocall, to inform you whether or not your child is eligible to apply to the programs with admissions requirements. (Your child’s NWEA scores will be mailed to you in February 2016.)

High School Letters – still going out

Well, despite the word from CPS that there would not be second or third rounds, a parent has just informed me that her daughter got and offer to Jones in a third round and the letter implied that there could be a fourth round.

So I guess it ain’t over till it’s over!

Just FYI, this child is turning down Jones to stay at Lincoln Park for Double Honors and Performing Arts.

If you hear of anyone else getting later letters or offers, let us know!
