CCSD Magnet Schools and Career and Technical Academies (CTAs) offer learning opportunities related to various themes for interested students. Students from across the District may apply to a Magnet/CTA, regardless of the region in which they reside. The purposes of Magnet/CTAs are to improve student achievement, promote diversity, and create an awareness of career opportunities relative to the fields of study in which students may be interested.

CCSD has one of the top Magnet programs in the country, with two National Demonstration Schools that are “best in the nation,” eight nationally certified Magnet Schools and 27 Magnet Schools of America awards this year.

Starting next year, kindergarten will be offered as an option at all 11 CCSD elementary Magnet Schools.

Online applications are now open! The round 1 application deadline for all 2020-2021 school year applicants is Tuesday, January 7, 2020.
