Please complete a separate application for each student applying to McKissick Academy of Science & Technology.
Zoned students do not need to apply as they are guaranteed automatic enrollment. Students who were accepted into the magnet school for 2018-2019 are guaranteed continued enrollment as long as they remain in good standing with grades, attendance, and discipline. Younger siblings are given priority on enrollment.
Parents will be notified of acceptance to McKissick Academy of Science & Technology via acceptance letter and will be required to return a confirmation of attendance form to the school’s office. If no spaces are available, students will be put on a waiting list. Students registering for 4K should follow the district registration process which will begin in January 2019. Applications for school choice will be available at your child's screening appointment. Students requesting Montessori have a separate application process. Please contact MAST for additional Montessori information.
At registration, birth certificates, immunization records, and proof of residency in Pickens County will be required. Parents do not need to apply each year. Acceptance is through the 5th grade. Parents will be asked to complete intent forms each year. Accepted students who live outside of McKissick Academy of Science & Technology's zone must provide their own transportation, arrive at school on time, be picked up promptly afterwards, be in regular attendance, and follow the Code of Student Conduct. Students who meet these criteria annually will not need to reapply for the magnet program.
