Enrollment Procedures & Dates

Would you like your child to be part of a premier middle school in the heart of Grand Crossing?

Attend one of our Admission Information Sessions. Our final sessions will be held Wednesday, July 13, and Wednesday, July 20, both starting at 6pm. The session will be held at the school and will last about an hour. These sessions are not a requirement, but many families find them helpful as they are considering if Gary Comer is a good fit for their child. Additional Admissions Information Sessions will be posted on this page as the dates are finalized.

Admission Process for Incoming 6th Grade Applicants

We are currently accepting applications for children who begin 6th grade in the 2016-2017 school year. You can pick up an application in our main office at 1010 E. 72nd Street. The application will take 10-15 minutes to complete.

Once all seats are filled, children will be added to the wait list in the order in which applications are received. This wait list will be maintained into the next school year, so children's names may come up for 7th grade enrollment in the 2017-2018 school year. We will not enroll new scholars after the first day of school.

Admission Process for Transfer Students

The admission process is different for scholars currently completing sixth or seventh grade interested in transferring to Gary Comer College Prep Middle School. Scholars are placed on a waitlist according to the date they contact us. Transfer scholars are only admitted at the beginning of the school year. If a scholar’s name comes to the top of the GCMS waitlist, we will contact them at the phone number or address provided.

If you are interested in transferring to Gary Comer College Prep Middle School, please contact Brad Johnson, Dean of Operations, to be placed on the waiting list.


If you have questions or would like more information on our enrollment process, please contact our Dean of Operations, Brad Johnson, at (773) 535-0755, or at bjohnson@noblenetwork.org.
