New Admissions Open House

Each Summer, Spring and Fall City Charter High School conducts an open house for 8th Graders and their parents who are thinking about applying for City High to attend in the Fall of their 9th Grade.

City High’s New Admissions Open Houses allow interested parents and students talk with teachers and student ambassadors, while touring our lecture hall, labs and classrooms. You’ll visit our cafeteria with a professionally equipped kitchen for chef-prepared lunches! Learn about students’ free laptop and cultural field trips, and why gave us an A Rating in Health and Safety, and  much more.
