Here’s what to know about the application and enrollment process:

  • NLCP has two campuses in the greater North Lawndale neighborhood of Chicago, both serving 9-12 grade.
  • As a public charter school, NLCP is tuition-free*. There are no entrance exams to enroll at our schools. We are open to all scholars who are Chicago residents, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, or disability status. *When you come to the school to apply, our office managers can answer questions about any applicable school fees.
  • Scholars who wish to transfer to NLCP for 10th, 11th or 12th grade should contact the school directly or use the applications above.
  • Transfer candidates should come to one of our NLCP campuses to fill out an application with a current transcript and discipline log to start the admissions process.
  • Transfer candidates must have enough credits for the grade for which they are seeking admission.
  • 8th grade students/incoming freshman should rank NLCP #1 in GoCPS. (Note: Effective Aug, 2019, Class of 2023 should use the applications above and come in to finish the process. When the time comes, Class of 2024 should use this GoCPS link.)

NLCP believes that all students should be prepared for success in college, the workplace, and life. We firmly believe that the background of our students is not the determining factor in how far they will go in life.
