GoCPS High School Application Account Activation is Now Available!

For all of our families that will be applying to a CPS high school for the 2018-19 school year, it’s time to take the next step in the high school application process and activate your account. Starting now, you can take important and critical steps to be ready for applying to school in October.

By activating your account now, you will be able to:

  • Create a username and password
  • Create your primary parent/guardian profile
  • Create profiles for each high school student in your family
  • Link student data records for current CPS students to the profile
  • View the programs your student(s) are eligible to apply to
  • Verify that student records are accurate, and request updates and corrections
  • “Favorite” top programs you are considering for applications in October

Visit http://go.cps.edu/activate to start the activiation process.

Activation Codes

If you are applying for a current CPS student, you will need to use the Activation Code from a letter sent home with them at the end of the school year to activate your account.

Non-CPS students do not need an Activation Code. Just follow the prompts to create a new account.

If you have misplaced or did not receive this 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.

Activation Codes will also be included with the Eligibility Letters that will be distributed to students at school in September 2017.

Application Advice

No matter who is activating the account, be sure to enter the name and address of the parent/guardian with whom the student resides. The address for this parent/guardian will be the address that is used for determining tiers, proximity boundaries, and attendance and overlay boundaries.
