Detroit Public Schools Community District offers a variety of specialty programs that require an application and some minimal qualifications for admission. The programs include: Gifted, Accelerated, Foreign Language Immersion, Aviation, Science and Medicine, Media Arts, Fine and Performing Arts, African-Centered Education and Single-Gender Education.

For the 2020-21 academic school year, there will be one, uniform online application available. Individual schools may have supplemental components of their application, i.e. an exam, essay questions, interviews, etc. Schools will contact families directly to complete these supplemental components once the online application has been received. 

The application period will run from April 1 through May 10, 2020. 

You may apply for up to three schools using this application. Please submit only one application per child.

The application is the beginning of a process that may require an interview, school tour, reference and/or audition. Additional enrollment forms will be required from students who are accepted.
Please be sure to review school requirements and programming before applying.
