Thank you for visiting the McKinley Classical Leadership Academy 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 2022-23 School Year SLPS Magnet and Choice Schools Placement Lottery, applications must be submitted by 11:59:59 pm Friday, November 5, 2021 for the Pool A Placement Lottery and by 11:59:59 pm Friday, January 7, 2022 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 residency verification is provided and/or the school or Gifted Office determines if the applicant meets the school criteria for acceptance.
Requirements must be met to be eligible for admission. The following items must be submitted to and reviewed by McKinley CLAHS Staff to determine eligibility.
Other documents including standardized test scores and/or requests for interviews and/or auditions may be required for Placement Eligibility Determination.
