Small Group Tours 

Small Group Tours are for parents and students thinking about attending City High and would like to visit classrooms while classes are in session. City High’s small group tours are typically available every Thursday while classes are in session. 

Open Houses

Each Summer, Spring and Fall City Charter High School conducts an open house for 8th Graders and their parents who are thinking about applying for City High to attend in the Fall of their 9th Grade. 

City High’s New Admissions Open Houses allow interested parents and students talk with teachers and student ambassadors, while touring our lecture hall, labs and classrooms. You’ll visit our cafeteria with a professionally equipped kitchen for chef-prepared lunches! Learn about students’ free laptop and cultural field trips, and why niche.com gave us an A Rating in Health and Safety, and much more. 

NOTE: Due to the current school closures, our Spring Open House will be rescheduled. 


If you have questions or would like to learn more, or receive informational brochures and/or alerts to upcoming City High events, please email us your name, address, and your child’s current grade level to Michelle Fossum at fossum@cityhigh.org or call 412-690-2489 ext. 111.

City High is excited to be a part of your child’s future, and wanted to remind you how important it is to attend the student’s official 9th Grade Orientation Day. 

You will receive your orientation packet and seat number in the mail with your reporting time typically in the Spring of the year of admission.
