- Muscogee County School District offers magnet programs within schools that offer a wide variety of concentrated studies.
Each of the elementary school magnets within the district has a unique instructional emphasis. Students must meet eligibility requirements to enroll in any of the magnet academies. The magnets are designed to provide an enriched learning experience for students in addition to the traditional elementary school curriculum. To remain in the magnet programs, students must meet expectations as established by each individual school in their continuation protocols.
Students interested in middle school magnet programs offered by MCSD will be required to meet minimum academic and behavioral standards as established by each individual magnet program. Certain magnet programs may require the student to sign a contract prior to selection and participation. Individual schools will publish standards for remaining in their program.
Each of the High School Magnet and Academy Programs is designed to provide an enriched learning experience for students in addition to the traditional high school curriculum. For more information on entrance requirements and space availability please contact the magnet schools directly.
