CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago students have a new tool to learn more about the many public high schools and programs offered by CPS.

It's a new website called High School Bound. Students can now look up and sort schools based on different criteria like interests, location and school data on HSBound.org.

If you're selecting a school for the 2017-2018 school year, the deadline to apply to CPS schools with academic criteria is this Friday.

"We understand that applying for high school can be a complicated process, which is why we are proud to partner on the High School Bound web site that can help simplify choices," Dr. Janice K. Jackson, CPS Chief Education Officer. "High School Bound will help increase accessibility and transparency in the high school application process, as well as help ensure all students from every neighborhood have access to the same information as they make a decision on where to go to high school."

Students can still apply to all other CPS high schools and programs through this spring.
