School Choice Information

For families with new or returning students: 
The Syracuse City School District is proud to offer a wide selection of unique programs for students entering PreK through 9th grade.  Parents/guardians seeking the opportunity to enroll their child in one of these programs must complete an online application during the open enrollment period of February 1 – April 30, 2020.  Submission of an application does not guarantee enrollment in a program. For any student not currently enrolled in the District, a separate registration application must be submitted in addition to any School Choice applications. Filling out a School Choice application on its own does not enroll your child in the District.
