Public magnet schools have a specific theme depending on student interests. Themes may include visual arts, performing arts, health, International Baccalaureate, or STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). There are two types of magnet schools: 1) small magnet school programs within your assigned district school and 2) whole magnet schools. Magnet schools are open to students going into K-12.
Transportation: Students must live within the transportation zone and live more than two miles from a school to receive transportation.
CCSD Enrollment: Students entering Kinder-10th grade that live or plan to live in the Clark County school district may apply. Some schools, like Las Vegas Academy Of The Arts and Del Sol Academy of the Arts in CCSD, will also accept students going into 11th grade.
Entry into a K-8th grade magnet schools is interest-based. mFor grades 9-12, some programs may require grade-based criteria such as STEAM whereas an art school might be audition-based. Like charter schools, magnet schools also use a lottery system. If you turn in your application after the deadline, it will be put into the lottery once all the on-time applications are considered.
The CCSD on-time application deadline for the 2024-2025 school year closed on January 9, 2024, at 3:00 pm. Late applications will open in mid-March.
