Welcome Message
Dear Parent:

The Options for Knowledge Program of the Chicago Public Schools is designed to provide a variety of educational program choices designed to meet all student needs, interests, and skill levels. These program choices include magnet schools, magnet cluster schools, open enrollment schools, minority transfer schools, regional gifted centers, classical schools, selective enrollment high schools, and International Baccalaureate programs. Each is designed to develop students to their fullest potential and provide an enhanced educational experience. The schools and programs are managed by the Office of Academic Enhancement.

We strongly encourage parents to review all of our schools and programs. Because acceptance is not guaranteed, we urge you to maximize your options by applying to all of the schools in which you may be interested. There is no limit to the number of schools to which you can apply.

On behalf of the entire Office of Academic Enhancement, we thank you for your interest and continued support of the Chicago Public Schools.

Abigayil Joseph
