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. provides several 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.
  • The School Guide: The EnrollNOLA School Guide offers a print version of schools’ online profiles, and also includes how performance data is calculated, citywide data, and more. Hard copies are available at Family Resource Centers.
  • 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 2018 – Summer 2019), click here.


Submit a OneApp by February 22 if your student is:

  • New to New Orleans 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)

The Early Window Deadline has passed.

  • If you applied to any of the schools below, you must also complete eligibility requirements before the Main Round closes at the end of February:
    • 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 your student would like to remain at his or her current school.
