Out of District Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment allows students who live outside the boundaries of the Cincinnati Public School District - but in the state of Ohio - to enroll in CPS schools without paying tuition. Priority always is given to students who live within the CPS boundaries. Application for an open-enrollment seat is made online May 1-31 2024.

Students applying under Open Enrollment through the Cincinnati Public School Website must meet any enrollment criteria required by a CPS school.  Applying during this period does not guarantee a spot. Specific numbers of available openings for out of district students is not known; it varies from year to year. The selection process is handled at the district level.
