Thank you for visiting the Columbia Gifted Elementary online application. On this page you will find a few instructions to get you started with the application.

Before beginning the application, we ask that you read our Requirements & Policies.

To ensure inclusion into the 2019-20 School Year SLPS Magnet and Choice Schools Placement Lottery, applications must be submitted by 11:59:59 pm Friday, November 2, 2018 for the Pool A Placement Lottery and by 11:59:59 pm Friday, January 4, 2019 for the Pool B Placement Lottery.

Applications submitted after the Pool B submission deadline will be processed and considered for placement on a first-come-first-served basis, after all Pool A and Pool B Lottery eligible applicants have been placed.


Information sent to applicants stating a child is "Lottery Eligible" does not indicate a seat to the requested school has been offered, or that an applicant has been accepted to attend the requested school. "Lottery Eligible" status indicates the student has met age and residency requirements to be considered for placement.


Information sent to applicants stating a child is "Placement Eligible" does not indicate a seat to the requested school has been offered, or that an applicant has been accepted to attend the requested school. "Placement Eligible" status means the student has met the criteria for determination of eligibility to attend the school requested.


Applicants must have placement requests "Submitted" and be considered "Lottery Eligible and "Placement Eligible" to be fully accepted to enroll at a school requested. Prior to determination of "Placement Eligibility", your child may be added to the Accepted List in the Pool A or Pool B Placement Lottery, PENDING DETERMINATION OF ELIGIBILITY. This means a seat is held for your child until address verification and/or the school or Gifted Office determines if the applicant meets the school criteria for acceptance.


Applicants to SLPS Gifted Programs must achieve eligible scores on tests administered by the SLPS Gifted Testing Offices, or scores from tests administered by other school districts that are submitted to and certified by the SLPS Gifted Testing Offices. The SLPS Gifted Testing Offices do not accept test results administered by private testing sources. The SLPS Gifted Testing Offices have final determination on student eligibility for gifted programs offered by the SLPS.
