9th Grade High School Choice
In February 2020, JPS implemented the 9th Grade High School Choice Program (9th Grade HSCP) to allow current JPS 8th Grade Students to apply for a Jefferson Parish high school outside of their Attendance Zone for the upcoming school year. 9th Grade HSCP does not remove attendance and transportation zone schools. All students will have an enrollment seat in their traditional attendance zone school.
*Only families wishing to attend a school OUTSIDE of their Attendance Zone School need to apply for 9th Grade High School Choice.
TRANSPORTATION TO THE SCHOOL OF CHOICE IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE PARENT.
LHSAA ELIGIBILITY: Students receiving approval for a 9th Grade High School Choice transfer are subject to LHSAA eligibility regulations.
