FCPS Special Program Application Window

Dear FCPS Families:


The 2019-20 school year is off to a great start! It's been wonderful to welcome our students, staff and families back to campus this week for another year of learning. 


Although the 2019-20 school year has just started, it is time to begin thinking ahead for next school year. The 2020-21 application window for the district’s gifted and talented programs, magnet schools, and other specialized academic opportunities opened today. 


Applications will be accepted from Aug. 15 through Oct. 7, 2019. It is not a first-come, first-served system. Applications may be submitted anytime during this window, and all will receive equal consideration.


This is also the window for families interested in their child applying for early entry to kindergarten next fall. The child must turn 4 years old by the end of this October for consideration. 


Fayette County Public Schools will host a districtwide Family Information Night from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Aug. 19 at Frederick Douglass High School, with representatives from each program on hand to answer questions.
