People for People Charter School is a public charter school, open to students from throughout Philadelphia. We operate on a lottery-based system.

Starting on September 28, 2018, anyone interested in applying to PFPCS for the 2019-20 school year can apply by going to on a phone, tablet, or computer. You will need to follow three steps:
