Welcome to the SLPS Magnet and Choice Schools 2019-20 School Year Online Application 

All 2019-20 School Year applications submitted after 11:59 pm on January 4, 2019 will be processed and considered for placement on a first-come first-served basis.

Some programs choices may be removed from receiving additional applicants due the schools projecting as full, with lengthy wait lists. 

The deadline to submit applications for both available Gifted and General Education Programs to be considered on a first-come first-served basis is Thursday, May 23, 2019, the last day of the SLPS 2018-19 school year.

Only applications to schools and grade levels with open seats will be processed and considered for placement after 11:59 pm Thursday, May 23, 2019.

If you have already applied prior to January 4, 2019 for your child in the Pool A or Pool B application periods, you do not need to re-apply for your child to be considered for the same choices in the post-lottery application period.  

Thank you for your interest in St. Louis Magnet and Choice Schools.
