Magnet Academy Virtual Open House Events

Greenville County Schools will host virtual Open House events to showcase each of our 11 magnet schools. This year, due to social distancing requirements, each magnet academy will offer a Magnet Open House video on their individual websites starting October 8 and ending October 22. The videos will explain the magnet application process and provide more information about each school’s program.

The first magnet application window is open from Monday, November 2 - Monday, November 30.  Magnet applications will be available on Monday, November 2, 2020 on the GCS Magnet Academies page or scan the QR code.

Admission into magnet academies is open to all eligible students, but spaces are limited. Students may apply to more than one magnet academy. Applications are scored based on four criteria: attendance, discipline, grade average (student interview in Grades K-5, 1, 2), and a student statement indicating why the student would like to attend the magnet academy. Students who apply and qualify during the first application period have a greater chance of being offered a slot than those students who apply and qualify in later rounds.

The academic program of each magnet academy offers a theme or focus that is designed to give students an opportunity to explore a special interest, gift, talent, or skill. These schools attract top students and talented teachers who bring innovative ideas to the classroom. Teachers are chosen based on their academic preparation, professional experience, and specialized skills.

Siblings of magnet students who will return the following school year to the school have priority of acceptance in Round 1. If magnet slots are available after all siblings who have qualified are placed, non-siblings will be accepted beginning with the highest to the lowest qualifying scores until the school’s assigned magnet slots have been filled. A lottery system is used when there are more qualifying students than available slots. Qualifying students not selected for a magnet academy are placed on a waiting list.
