Children’s Scholarship Fund
Families can also use the fair to apply for a Children’s Scholarship Fund of Philadelphia scholarship. CSFP provides four-year, needs-based, partial scholarships for up to three children in a family to a Philadelphia private school.
Families applying to private Catholic schools operated by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia can apply online using the Universal Application. Select up to four high schools and submit one application.
Other private schools accept applications independently. Learn more about their applications process by viewing their school profile on greatphillyschools.org.
There are currently 169 public K-8 schools run by the School District of Philadelphia. Students interested in citywide- or special-admission schools must apply through the District’s online application, due November 1st.
Students can apply to up to five schools through the application, not including their neighborhood school.
