HOW TO APPLY

OneApp is the unified application process for New Orleans Public Schools. Before submitting an application for next school year, we encourage you to research your school choices. EnrollNOLA.org provides resources to help you do that:

  • School profiles: K-12 schools and Early Childhood school profiles provide information like location, grades served, school performance, and extracurriculars. To filter the school options, click “Find” and select whichever criteria is important to your family in selecting a school.
  • Guidance for Families: These additional resources can assist you in making smart school choices, filling out an online application, and more.

If you are seeking a school for the current school year (Fall 2019 – Summer 2020), click here.

SUBMIT A ONEAPP BY JANUARY 31, 2020 IF YOUR STUDENT IS:

  • New to Orleans Parish or new to public schools
  • Seeking to transfer from their current school to a new school for the 2019-2020 School Year
  • In a transitional grade, which means their current school does not offer their expected grade next school year. (For example, your child will advance from 8th grade to high school)
  • If you applied to any of the schools below, be sure to adhere the early window deadline of January 15 and complete admission requirements:
    • Audubon Uptown Montessori (all grades)
    • Audubon Uptown French (all grades)
    • International School of Louisiana, all campuses (grades 2-8)
    • Lycee Francais de la Nouvelle Orleans (grades 1-9)
  • If you did not apply to selective admissions schools, it is not necessary to apply earlier in the Main Round window. Applying earlier in the Main Round does not increase your likelihood of assignment.

DO NOT SUBMIT A ONEAPP IF YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR CHILD TO REMAIN AT HIS OR HER CURRENT SCHOOL.
