Enroll at AGC
Thank you for your interest in enrolling your child at the Academy for Global Citizenship. We’d be delighted to welcome you for a visit to our learning community.
Our Enrollment Process
The Academy for Global Citizenship is an open enrollment, free public school for students living within the City of Chicago. We particularly encourage families in the LeClaire Courts, West Elsdon, and Archer Heights neighborhoods to apply, however, there is no neighborhood boundary or preference given based on residential area. We welcome students, parents, employees, and community members with disabilities. Our building and programming are fully accessible. The Academy for Global Citizenship does not base admission on academic performance. Admission is based on a lottery held each spring.
Students applying for kindergarten must be age 5 by September 1st for the year for which they are applying. Students entering any grade level may submit an Intent to Enroll form with the year they wish to enroll clearly marked. The application is valid only for the marked school year. Complete and accurate applications are due by the designated deadline in order to be entered into the blind public lottery held each spring. Any applications received after the due date will be put on the waitlist compiled after the drawing.
The Intent to Enroll form is available in the main office or by clicking the button above. To request an application by mail, please contact the school office at 773.582.1100.
Intent to Enroll forms may be submitted to the office in person, by mail, fax, and e-mail and are accepted on an ongoing basis. Applicants will receive written confirmation stating that the application has been received; the reply may take up to three business days. If you do not receive a reply, your application was not received.
On the lottery date, students will be randomly selected for available spaces and for the waitlist. Waitlisted families will be notified immediately if a space becomes available at any point after the lottery.
The deadline to apply for the 2014-2015 School Year is March 7th, 2014 and a public lottery will be held on March 20th, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. Applications for the current year waitlist are still being accepted.

and in Spanish at 11:00 a.m. To schedule, please contact
Ms. Mares at 773.582.1100.
