Friday is the deadline to apply for a choice program in PBC schools


If your child is hoping to attend for a choice program in a Palm Beach County public school next year, you need to get your application in soon.

The deadline is Friday for applying for any of the county’s more than 300 choice, or “magnet,” programs, including dual language, graphic design, pre-med, construction and computer science programs.

The deadline has already passed for applying for arts programs at Bak Middle School, The Conservatory School at North Palm Beach, Boynton Beach High School and Dreyfoos School of the Arts.

Only one application may be submitted per student. Applications can be submitted online or submitted via mail.

In programs with more applicants than seats, students will be selected via a lottery. Lottery results will be announced in April.

You can apply online here. Anyone with questions can contact the school district’s choice office at
