Please read through the following application process steps FIRST before launching the application form link found below.
The Magnet School/Program Application Process allows families from Aurora to apply to a school other than their boundary school. Families who live outside of Aurora can also apply. There are different criteria for each magnet school or program, so please be sure to read the school’s website carefully. A magnet school or program may conduct a lottery or hold an interview or performance task. Please note that magnet schools or programs are part of APS and are not considered charter schools. Please know that you may qualify for district-led transportation if you live within APS boundaries.
Applicants can select more than one magnet school or program if the grade level is offered.
The deadline for all magnet school/program applications is Feb. 23.
Applicants must log into the application site and may make changes up until 5 p.m. on Feb. 23.
If an applicant does not currently attend an APS school, additional information may be requested by a school.
Applicants will be notified in March 2024 of their application status.
Applicants may be accepted into a magnet school/program, not accepted or waitlisted.
Applicants will receive an email regarding the decision which will be sent to the email address from which they applied.
Applicants who have applied to more than one magnet school or program must select one school by the March 18 at 5:00 p.m. deadline.
Think carefully about your decision to apply to a magnet school/program. Once the selection is made (if families are deciding between two schools), changes are not guaranteed, so please choose carefully. The school will contact families directly when a seat becomes available to a student who is on the waitlist. Waitlists are purged on a yearly basis when the next year’s application process begins.
