Welcome to the St. Louis Public Schools Magnet and Choice Schools 2017-2018 Online Application    

As of May 26, 2017, 2017-18 School Year applications submitted online are no longer being received and processed. Paper submitted applications for schools and grades where open seats exist will be processed from May 26, 2017 until August 9, 2017, for potential placement in the 2017-18 school year. Paper applications submitted for schools and grades where seats do not exist will not be processed. Please see listing below for schools and grades with projected open seats. Applications will be processed for potential placement on a first-come first-served basis. Visit this link  to access a printable 2017-18 School Year Application.

If you have already created a parent account and wish to view the dashboard for your child's submitted application(s) you can still login to your account.

Please be sure to login in with the email used in the first/previous account established to create applications and communicate the status of your applications. If you create an additional parent account and attempt to apply for a student that is already listed under another/previous parent account, the system will not let you proceed with that application. You will receive a message telling you that the student already exists within the system.

New for the 2017-18 School Year, parents may submit placement requests/apply for their child to be considered for both Gifted Education Program schools and General Education Program Schools simultaneously. This consideration is being offered to allow for children awaiting testing for Gifted Education Program Schools to also be considered for placement into General Education Schools if the student does not test eligible for Gifted Education Programs after the lottery has been run.

If the situation occurs where a student is determined eligible for Gifted Education Programs and is accepted to both Gifted and General Education Program Schools requested in submitted applications, the parent will be asked to choose which school they desire for the child to attend and this decision is final. A student cannot hold seats to two different SLPS Magnet Schools at one time. The offered seat that is declined will no longer be available for the child after the choice of the two schools is selected by the parent/guardian of the student.
