GDA Registration Process

  • Cincinnati Public Schools uses an online system to register students.

    The online system simplifies and streamlines the process of enrolling children in CPS. Parents, or legal guardians, first must register a child using the online system; after all required documents are uploaded, staff will finalize the registration and enroll the child.

    It may take several days for your child's enrollment to be finalized. Your child will be enrolled as quickly as possible.

    You will receive confirmation from CPS' Online Registration system when completed.

    To enroll in John J. Gilligan Digital Academy, please complete the following steps: 

    1. Click on the Online Registration link on the Online Student Registration page.
      • If this is your first time with the online enrollment system, you will need to create an account. Once you create an account, you will need to go back to the home page to start the pre-enrollment information tab. It will be helpful to have your child's student identification number so that current information can populate automatically.
    2. In the first section of the enrollment titled Student Information, please indicate "NO" for question 1.3: "Do you want your student to attend this school?" Once you indicate "NO," GDA will be provided as an option to enroll. 
    3. Please complete the other sections of the enrollment form to complete the online enrollment process. 

    For additional enrollment questions, call (513) 363-2040 or email.
