Magnet Application Process

Magnet applications will be available via GCS Parent Backpack during specified windows of time stated in the Application Round Schedule. Please visit the Magnet Academy FAQs for information about how applications are scored and processed.

Parent Backpack Directions: To access the online magnet application, parents should login into their Parent Backpack account. Parents of students outside of Greenville County Schools can create a new user account. Once logged into Parent Backpack, select "Programs" from the column on the left. Then select "Apply to a Program." Available programs will show on the screen. Select "Apply" beside Magnet Academies to begin the application process.

**Parents will be able to apply for multiple magnet academies within the same online application, but they will only be able to submit the magnet application once. Parents should make sure to select all schools for which their student desires to apply and complete all sections of the application before selecting submit.**

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, academic performance, and a student statement indicating why the student would like to attend the magnet academy. Students who apply and qualify during the first application round have a greater chance of being offered a slot than those students who apply and qualify in later rounds.

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.


Purchase a Back-up Student ID

Every student is issued one Student ID and lanyard, at no charge, at the beginning of the school year. BUT life happens, and ID's are often lost or left at home! Save yourself any last minute panic by purchasing your student a backup ID (or two or three). Encourage your student to hang backups in their locker or zip them into a special pocket on their bookbag.

Use MySchoolBucks to order additional IDs for your student. If purchased through MySchoolBucks, student IDs will be provided the following school day. Students who bring cash on the day of will be given a student ID by their lunch period (same day).
