SAISD launches open-application period for 2018-19 for specialized Choice Schools and Magnet Programs

SAISD launches open-application period for 2018-19 for specialized Choice Schools and Magnet Programs 

Students both inside and outside the boundaries of San Antonio ISD may apply to the District’s non-boundary “Choice” Schools and Programs beginning today for the upcoming school year. The application period for these specialized schools and magnets is Nov. 27, 2017-Jan. 31, 2018 for the 2018-19 school year.

Students do not have to reside in SAISD boundaries to apply to a Choice School or Magnet Program. For details or to apply online, please go to www.saisd.net/enroll.

The District offers more than 20 specialized, non-boundary schools, across different grade levels, with diverse areas of focus and innovative methods of instruction. Students have the opportunity to pursue specialized instruction based on their individual interests and aspirations. Some of these schools operate under non-traditional grade configurations, such as PK-8, PK-12 and 6-12.

SAISD Magnet Programs are a fast-track to college and career, giving students the opportunity to earn up to 45 hours of college credit by high school graduation. The District’s Magnet programs are tightly aligned to Alamo Colleges’ programs and are offered at eight SAISD high schools. Students earn the college credit through a mix of dual-credit courses and Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate credit by exam.
