Get Your Child Into a Magnet School NOW

Did you know that you can get your child into a magnet school right now? Yes, even though the school year just started, your child could still attend a magnet school.

There's a catch, of course. Popular magnet schools are at full enrollment, so there won't be a spot for your child.

But you might be surprised. Even popular schools like centers for enriched studies can have openings, particularly in upper grades.

How can your child get in to a magnet school right now?

If you have a dream school for your child, it can't hurt to call the magnet coordinator and ask if they have any openings. Most likely they won't, but there are schools that clear their wait lists over the summer and start the school year with a few open slots.

For a more general search, try using LAUSD's Potential Seat Openings tool. You can sort the list by grade level, which helps narrow down the field quickly.

To file the late application, click the Apply button at the top right of this page.

For the 2021-2022 school year, the Choices application will hopefully be available in October. Although the pandemic has thrown everyone in the district for a loop, magnet schools continue to operate as normal, albeit with distance learning.
