The Lafayette Parish School System Magnet Academies provides two time periods in which students can apply; Phase I and Phase II. Phase I begins at the conclusion of the Magnet Academies Showcase which is held each year in the fall. Applications are open for a specified time period. Of those applications that were accurately completed, a lottery will be held in order to fill the specified number of seats available within the Academy. Should there be seats available after the lottery, Phase II will begin. Dates for both phases will vary from year to year. Check the Calendar of Events to determine application time frames.
