Pittsburgh Public Schools Magnet Information

Magnet schools and programs allow students to pursue special interests, talents or career goals. Magnet schools are not neighborhood specific-so students who reside anywhere in the Pittsburgh Public School District can apply to attend.

Magnet Lottery Update:  The magnet lottery application window is now closed for the 2017-2018 school year.  The magnet lottery will run in early January with announcement letters and wait list placements sent by the end of January.  Please contact our Magnet Office with any questions.
We are currently accepting post-lottery magnet application for the 2017 – 2018 school year. Students may apply for enrollment in to magnet programs with remaining vacancies, or to be added to existing waiting lists. More information about available program spaces will be shared here after the magnet lottery has taken place.
