Enrollment Process

Enrollment for new students for the 2020-2021 school year is now live! As a public charter school network, LEARN utilizes a lottery system to fill open seats at each of our ten schools. No preferences are given based on race, gender or religious affiliation. To apply for a seat at a LEARN school, parents/guardians and students must reside in the cities of Chicago, North Chicago/Great Lakes or Waukegan. Click the enrollment policy below to read more about our application process.


Please note: LEARN will continue to accept enrollment forms past the lottery date.
