Choice Program Application Deadline Extended through February 2

The window to apply for a Choice program for the 2018-2019 school year has been extended through February 2, 2018.

​This extended deadline does not apply to the December 1, 2017 deadline for Arts programs requiring auditions. The following schools/programs had an application deadline date of December 1, 2017: ​Bak Middle School of the Arts (all programs)​, The Conservatory School @ North Palm Beach (Symphony Orchestra)​, Boynton Beach High School Arts programs (Dance, Digital Media, Music-Band, Music-Vocal, and Theatre), Dreyfoos School of the Arts (all programs​). ​

WHAT KIND OF PROGRAMS ARE WE TALKING ABOUT?

Future lawyers, doctors and engineers had to get their early start somewhere. The exposure to other high demand career opportunities like finance, biomedical and cyber security make campuses unique in what they have to offer students for focused fields of study.

HOW WILL MY CHILD GET TO AND FROM SCHOOL?

Choice Program students may receive transportation regardless of their proximity to the Choice school. Parents must provide transportation to the closest bus stop in order to be eligible. Bus stops will only be available within the Choice Transportation Zone for each school and additional stops will not be created.

WHAT IF I WANT TO SEE THE SCHOOL FOR MYSELF BEFORE APPLYING?

Contact the schools directly and the programs coordinator can assist you with scheduling a tour and answer questions about the programs at the school.

THIS ALL SOUNDS GREAT. HOW DO I APPLY?
The Choice Programs application can be completed either online, or by hardcopy. However, applying online is the most efficient way to submit and manage your child’s application. Using the parent dashboard, your online account will allow you to track the status of your application. Applying online gives you priority access to the lottery results.  As you plan for the next application period please be aware of the eligibility criteria for middle and high school programs if applicable.

Late applications will be accepted after February 2, however they will not be included in the 2018 Choice lottery and will be entered after all applicants in the wait pool have been assigned.
