Countywide magnet programs provide a wide range of educational opportunities with very specialized curricula. Arterial transportation to and from countywide magnet programs is provided by the school district at no cost to the parent.

APPLICATION TO MAGNET SCHOOLS/PROGRAMSCenter for Wellness and Medical Professions at Boca Ciega High school
Students enter magnet programs through the online application process. Applicants (students) must be residing in Pinellas County at the time of application. If the number of applicants exceeds the number of openings, a random computer selection process is used.

Magnet programs are still taking late applications. To submit a late application, families should call or visit the school that offers the program and ask to be added to the wait list.

Elementary and middle school magnet and fundamental school wait lists last the entire school year. High school lists last through the 10th day of the second semester.

After the school year has started, if a student withdraws from a magnet or fundamental school or career academy, he or she will be assigned to a school that has space available. Every effort will be made to assign students to their zoned school or the next closest school that has available space.

Pinellas County Schools, under the Magnet Schools Assistance Program, received federal grant dollars to design and develop four specialized attendance area programs. These four schools, which are not countywide programs, serve students who live in the southern portion of the county. These schools are still taking applications for the current year.
