Academy & Advanced Academic Programs

As a result of the inclement weather, the deadline for application to Old Donation Center, Kemps Landing Magnet and all academy and advanced academic programs has been extended to Wednesday, Feb. 5 to allow families a little extra time to complete the application process.

The Academy and Advanced Academic Programs represent an exciting expansion of curricular options for all students across the city. Recognizing that no educational program should adopt a “one size fits all” philosophy, the division developed these programs to provide additional academic choices for our students.
