*EVENT FULL* CPS 201: Selective Enrollment Elementary School Options @ Erikson Institute · May 31, 2018

Chicago School Choice

PLEASE NOTE: THIS EVENT IS NOW FULL. At this time, we can no longer accept additional RSVPs for this event. Please check back on the NPN calendar for our next offering of CPS 201! 

Going beyond the basic information given at our popular CPS 101 seminars, this NEW session will cover CPS Selective Enrollment Elementary Schools (SEES).  If you are just beginning your research on Chicago Public Schools, we recommend attending a "CPS 101" seminar first.   

What are SEES? What is the difference between a classical and gifted school? What does the testing process involve? What can my child do to prepare? How do admissions work? How do I know if these programs are right for my child?

If you are considering public school choices for your child and are interested in exploring accelerated learning options, attend our "CPS 201" discussion.  Join Didi Lewis, Chicago Public School Office of Access & Enrollment community partner, and Grace Lee Sawin of Chicago School GPS as they share information on CPS Selective Enrollment Schools (Classical Schools and Regional Gifted Centers).  They will cover the application and testing processes, admission criteria, and more.

NOTE: This event covers elementary school programs beginning at kindergarten and first grade in great depth. We will also touch on Academic Centers (7th and 8th grades).  CPS preschool, magnet, and neighborhood/open enrollment options will NOT be covered in this discussion (please check the NPN calendar for the next presentation of our "CPS 101" seminar for this information).  

Open to NPN members; adults only. Space is limited, food and light refreshments will be served. Please be respectful of our presenters & sponsors and honor your RSVP.  

Special thank you to our host sponsor, Erikson InstituteCenter for Children and Familes and the Fussy Baby Network for their support of this program.

Thank you to our presenting sponsor, Real Living City Residential. RLCR has sponsored NPN's Chicago School Choice program for 5 years.
