The application process for the 2024-2025 school year is now open through March 29th, 2024.

2024-2025 NewTech@Mann Application

Application Process -- Your student must be a J. L. Mann student in order to attend NewTech@Mann classes. If you do not live in the J. L. Mann attendance area you must apply through the Magnet Program before you can apply to NewTech@Mann.  

NewTech@Mann offers a comprehensive high school curriculum with a focus on project-based instruction. J. L. Mann High School elective courses, athletics, and extracurricular activities are available to New Tech students. The New Tech curriculum focus is appropriate for both college-bound and workforce-bound students; AP, CP, dual-credit, and honors-level course credit are available through New Tech. Students accepted into NewTech@Mann are required to remain for the full school year. 

Applications will be reviewed for student interest in project-based learning and prior high school credit earned. There is not a minimum GPA requirement – any interested home-based or accepted magnet student may apply.

In order to ensure equity and fairness, NewTech@Mann students are selected by lottery after the application deadline. Only students whose completed applications were received prior to the application deadline will be included in the lottery. Student selection continues until 150 9th grade applicants have been chosen. The 151st student selected (and beyond) will go on a waiting list in the order that they are drawn. This waiting list stays in force through the current school year until the lottery for the next school year is conducted and a new list is generated.
