About Round 2 High School Admissions
In Round 2, you can apply to new high schools opening in September 2013, new programs opening in existing schools (that were not available in Round 1), and other programs with available seats.
All 8th grade and first time 9th grade students can participate in Round 2 of the high school admissions process, even students who received a match in Round 1. For students who received a Round 1 match and are choosing to participate in Round 2, please note:
- If you do not receive a match in Round 2, you will keep your Round 1 match.
- If you receive a match to a program you select in Round 2, you will forfeit your Round 1 offer ; you will not be able to choose between the Round 1 and Round 2 offers. Additionally, an appeal to your Round 1 offer will not be considered.
How to Apply in Round 2
1. Explore the program options that are available in Round 2. Meet with your guidance counselor and review the Round 2 Program List (see below), the High School Directory and the Directory of New Schools and New Programs. Back to Top
