Open Enrollment/Application Process

Late Applications will be accepted after January 8, 2018; however, they will not be included in the March 2018 Magnet Lottery and may be entered only after all applicants in the wait pool have been assigned.

What can you do to ensure a completed application is submitted on time?

  • Check your child’s Infinite Campus account to ensure you can access the account, and to ensure you are aware of your child’s academic progress.
  • Secure email addresses for two teachers that will complete the recommendation forms. Teachers will receive the recommendation forms electronically.
  • Read the School Choice Guide in its entirety.
  • Know and understand the eligibility criteria for your selected school choices, and submit all required additional information.
  • If you reside in Clayton County but do not attend a school under the jurisdiction of Clayton County Public Schools, you will be required to submit residency documentation and student transcripts prior to February 15, 2018. All documents must be uploaded to the application portal.

Please Note: The application portal will only allow those students who are current Pre-Kindergarten through 9th Grade students to apply.

Parents wishing to enroll their children as a Pre-Kindergarten student for 2018-2019, should not submit an application at this time. Please visit the Pre-Kindergarten website for more information.
