Admission to Magis can be competitive. While we receive applications from many qualified students, we are not able to accept all students who are interested in Magis. Through our admissions process, we hope to accept students who:
- are motivated to succeed in school and life;
- show openness towards learning new things, embracing new experiences, meeting new people, and making positive contributions to the Magis community;
- are committed to academics as demonstrated through their achievement at their current schools;
- receive a positive recommendation from their current teacher or principal;
- are among the first members of their family to attend college; and
- commit to attend all Magis activities until the student enters high school.
