How Do I Get an Application?
How To Obtain an Application
Applications are mailed after November 1st directly to all 8th grade public school students who live in New Castle County. Applications are also available upon request from any of the NCC Vo-Tech high schools, or by calling the NCC Vo-Tech School District Office of Admissions (302-995-8035).
In accordance with state regulations, all applicants must complete and submit the Delaware Standard Application for Educational Options form in addition to a supplemental form (Student Application Part II). Printable forms are available below. Please submit your application between November 1, 2021 and January 12, 2022 for primary consideration.
Completed print versions of both forms may be submitted directly to the NCC Vo-Tech Office of Admissions or to any NCC Vo-Tech High School (Delcastle, Hodgson, Howard, and St. Georges). Copies of the final 7th grade and most recent 8th grade report card must be submitted with the completed application forms. Report cards must include attendance information and must be readable. Application forms and report cards may be submitted directly to NCC Vo-Tech School District Office of Admissions by mail (at NCC Vo-Tech School District Office of Admissions, 1417 Newport Road, Wilmington DE 19804), or may be dropped off at any NCC Vo-Tech high school main lobby or the NCC Vo-Tech Office of Admissions weekdays between 7:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Some middle schools offer assistance with completing and submitting the application for students. Please check with the applicant’s current school to ask if it provides this service. All applications should be submitted by the second Wednesday in January in order to receive primary consideration. Incomplete or unsigned applications cannot be reviewed.
Students and a parent/guardian may also submit an application by using an online website, www.SchoolChoiceDE.org. The online application will be available in early November.
Applicants using this online website will also need to provide supplemental information, including school and career program preferences, and copies of the applicant’s final 7th grade and most recent 8th grade report card, which must include attendance, before the application is considered complete.
Please submit only one application (online or printed) per student.
The NCC Vo-Tech Office of Admissions will continue to consider applications received any time during the school year or during the summer months; however, applications submitted by the second Wednesday in January do receive primary consideration. Applications submitted after that date are considered on a case-by-case basis.
