Greater Newark Charter School
A. One Newark Enrolls is a system of choice where all families can access great schools for their children, regardless of the school’s status as district or charter. The system is available to any Newark family wishing to enroll their child in a new school for the upcoming year. Students may rank up to eight school choices – both district and charter – on a single application. They will then receive a single offer to attend the best possible school given their selections.
A. Families may apply to GNCS in two ways: by completing a paper application, or by logging into the new Online Enrollment Center at www.newarkenrolls.org. The application will be open from January 6 to February 14. Students may apply any time within this window. Families can pick up a copy of the paper application at any participating school or at a number of community locations, and can return the application to any school. Just be sure you list Greater Newark Charter School as your top choice on the application!
A. In the past, families have had to navigate multiple applications, competing timelines, and dual processes during regular enrollment seasons. One Newark Enrolls streamlines this process by combining applications, timelines, and processes into a single system that all participating schools follow.
A. After the application closes, automated computer software will match each student with the best possible school based on the student’s choices and the policies of the enrollment system. This computer software is used in several other districts with centralized enrollment systems, and has been customized for Newark’s needs. Students will learn of their matches in April 2014.
A. You will need to complete a new application via the new One Newark Enrolls application. Be sure to list Greater Newark Charter School as your #1 choice on the application!
A. Unfortunately new waiting lists will be created within the new application system. Please complete new applications for each student via the new One Newark Enrolls application. Be sure to list Greater Newark Charter School as your #1 choice!

A. Siblings of currently enrolled GNCS students are given preference for admission over non-sibling applicants. Sibling preference applies to a student who has a sibling already in attendance at the school at the time of the lottery. Sibling preference only applies to students who share a common parent through birth or legal adoption and live in the same household. Children who live in separate households are not considered siblings.
