Magnet application schedule for Clayton County schools

January 26, 2011 Leave a comment

Registration is open now for Clayton County’s fine arts and science magnet schools, and will open soon for its year-round school.

Fine Arts Magnet High School is accepting applications through this Friday, Jan. 28.

Rex Mill Middle School, Clayton’s science magnet, has opened its registration process for rising 6th graders (current 5th graders). The application deadline is Feb. 25.

Elite Scholars Academy will open its lottery registration — which will be online only — on Feb. 21. Their web site says registration will be open “for several weeks” but doesn’t give a closing date.

For those interested in the International Baccalaureate programs at Lovejoy or North Clayton high schools, I’m afraid I got to this a little late — their deadlines passed earlier this month. Sorry.

For links to the web sites of any of these schools, visit the Clayton County Schools page on this site.
