Houston Charter Schools Launch Common Online Application

Houston’s Families Empowered is the latest organization to partner with SchoolMint, provider of cloud-based strategic enrollment management software for PreK-12 school systems worldwide, to launch a common online application for its city’s charter schools. In addition to Houston, SchoolMint’s common online application for charter schools has been implemented in cities with some of the highest percentages of charter enrollment nationwide, including Boston, Kansas City, New York City, Oakland, Rochester, St. Louis, and West Contra Costa.

Created by non-profit Families Empowered, Apply Houston is a partnership between multiple public charter school networks designed to streamline the PreK-12 school application process. Parents looking for school options can fill out one application and apply to any or all of the 50-plus participating schools. The Apply Houston application takes parents approximately 10 minutes to complete, can be accessed on mobile devices, and is available in multiple languages.
