School News > 8th Grade Families: Activate Your GoCPS Account Now and Review Important High School Information

Activate Your GoCPS Account

 

It’s almost time for the first week of school, and for our 8th grade families, this also means that high school application season is right around the corner. There is so much to do before then, including reviewing the programs to which you are eligible to apply. You can access this program eligibility information now by Activating your GoCPS account.

 

Don’t miss out on valuable research time. Activate your account now!

 

To begin the account activation process, visit this page: http://go.cps.edu/activate

 

Activating vs. Applying

 

Keep in mind that “Activating” is not “Applying.”  Applications will not be available until October 2, 2017, but by activating now you can complete important application preparation steps like viewing your student’s program eligibility, requesting edits and updates to missing or inaccurate student records, and saving your top programs as favorites.

 

Application Advice

 

If you have misplaced or did not receive your Activation Code, please contact the Office of Access and Enrollment’s call center from a telephone number on your child’s CPS student information file to have it reissued. The call center can be reached at 773-553-2060 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.  

 

Adding Students to Your Account

 

Whether you are applying for a current CPS student or a new one, make sure to follow the correct path when adding students to your account. When you are on the screen that asks “Is your child new to the Chicago Public Schools System:”

 

If you are applying for a student who was enrolled in CPS in the 2016-2017 school year, click “no.”

If you are applying for a student who was not enrolled in CPS in the 2016-2017 school year, click “yes.”

 

Need Help?

 

If you have any questions about the activation process, contact the Office of Access and Enrollment at 773-553-2060 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
