New Magnet Application Process

  • Alachua County Public Schools is implementing a new magnet program application process for all of the district’s academic and career and technical (CTE) magnet programs. This application process is more streamlined, centralized and aims to promote diversity and expand educational opportunities to all students.

    Under this process, 75% of the new students in each magnet program will be selected by the school. The other 25% will be chosen through a districtwide lottery system. Students must meet certain academic, attendance and disciplinary standards to be eligible for each magnet. High school applicants will also be required to submit short essays specific to each program.  

Magnet Application and Acceptance Timeline

  • The Magnet Application and Acceptance Timeline will be coming soon.
