Important Note for Students Not Currently Enrolled in SCSD: If your child is not currently enrolled in the Syracuse City School District, you must also complete a registration for enrollment into SCSD for the 2023-2024 school year between Feb. 1 and Mar. 31 to be considered for a High School Choice program.
High School Choice and Transfer Application Assistance and Consent Form: Please complete and share with your school counselor in order to apply to the High School Choice/Transfer program(s) of your choice.
Each student is eligible to select a maximum of two High School Choice options and one High School Transfer request this year. Once the form is complete, your child's middle school counselor will enter the appropriate selections into our online enrollment system. From there, the High School Choice Team will coordinate scheduling to ensure that your child can participate in the interview process, which will be conducted both virtually and in-person, when applicable.
If your child is not interested in a Career or Technical Education (CTE) or Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) Program, they will be assigned to their feeder school
, if applicable. You will have the ability to select this option on the form.
Important Note: Submitting the High School Choice and Transfer Application Assistance and Consent Form or participating in the High School Choice interview process does not guarantee admission. When there are more students eligible for a program than seats available, the District will use the an online lottery system to conduct a randomized lottery for each program to select students.
