High School Magnets

Next Steps:

Determine if your child is eligible to apply for a magnet school.

  • Even if your child is zoned to attend a high school where a magnet program exists (i.e. – Academy of Engineering @ Lyman High School) you MUST still submit a magnet application.

Complete the appropriate magnet school application.

Submit the magnet school application via the online application system.

  • Confirmation email will be sent upon submission.
  • If you do not receive a confirmation email, you did not submit the application.

Receive a magnet school notification email.

  • On time/lottery applications = school assignment email sent in mid-January each year.
  • Based upon limited seat availability, even some on time applicants may receive a wait list email.
  • Late applications = will be placed on the wait list for that specific program.

Accept your child’s magnet school assignment or wait list seat via the online application system.

  • Log into your parent/guardian account at www.seminoleschoolchoicesapplication.us.
  • Find the “magnet school applications” tab in the middle of the screen and accept your child’s seat placement.

If accepted into a magnet school, students must then register at the school site.

  • School is responsible for checking all required registration documentation and verifying residency.
  • All magnet school acceptance notifications have a registration deadline.
  • If the parents/guardians do not register their child by the stated deadline, they will be required to submit a new magnet school application and their child will be placed on the wait list.

Wait Pool Management:

  • On-time applicants not assigned to the magnet school or program will be randomly placed in a waiting pool for that school for the remainder of the current school year.
  • On time applicants are placed prior to late applicants, as practicable.
  • Late applicants will be chosen from the waiting pool in order of the date and time their applications are received.
  • Families must reapply, beginning in October, to be eligible for a new magnet school for the following year.
  • Families that are satisfied with their magnet school do not need to reapply in subsequent years.

10th, 11th, & 12th Grade Applicants:

  • Acceptance into a magnet school/magnet program is contingent upon a school based administrative review of student transcripts.  However, families should still apply through the same online application system.
