Starting today, families in Houston can apply to five charter school networks using just one online form.
The common application, called ApplyHouston, and developed in partnership with SchoolMint, is available for the 2018–19 school year for pre-K through 12th grade. Parents can fill out a single application for all the students in their family and select the schools they want to receive it. In previous years, each school had separate forms with different deadlines and required an application for each child.
More than 50 schools in five charter networks — KIPP Houston Public Schools, Yes Prep Public Schools, Étoile Academy, Promise Community Schools, and A Plus Unlimited Potential Charter Schools — are participating.
