Magnet Programs


A Tailored Path

Magnet programs offer a theme-based curriculum for students who are interested in specific subjects that match their talents, skills or career path. Teachers receive specialized training aligned to the school's thematic focus, and strong community partnerships support the relevance of the theme with a real-world view.

Magnet schools seek to recruit and draw an ethnically diverse student body from throughout the city. Students who wish to attend a magnet school go through an application process, and proof of residence in the Austin ISD attendance zone is required to apply to an AISD magnet school.
