The Bartow County School District recognizes that students who demonstrate exceptional potential in a specific area may benefit from a specialized program. Bartow's magnet programs allow students to pursue their interests, develop their talents, and extend their competencies beyond the usual scope of high school.
These additional academic opportunities include an accelerated curriculum in a specialized area of study, additional Advanced Placement offerings, connections to businesses and community partnerships across our county in a specialized way and the building of a strengthened college and career pathway with a focus on learning, collaboration and results.
During fall semester, eighth grade students at each district middle school are provided information about all magnet programs. Due to limited space at each program, students are selected through a highly competitive, rigorous application process. Applications to academic magnets are due in early December.
The district provides arterial transportation for students attending magnet programs. Interested students and parents should go online or contact program coordinators for more information.
