Office of Student Enrollment

The Office of Student Enrollment provides students and families with the opportunity to choose a school that best suits their interests and needs through a centralized enrollment process. This department manages OneApp, the unified application process, which offers students the opportunity to easily apply to all participating schools using one application. K – 12 Families may apply to a maximum of 12 participating schools of their choice, anywhere across the city. The application is open to families who are new to New Orleans, new to public school, or who would like to apply to transfer for the upcoming school year. OneApp has adapted over time to include a diverse portfolio of schools with various programming models, governance structures, and admissions criteria. For enrollment inquiries, please contact us:
