Teacher Recommendations
When you submit your application, emails will be sent to your 8th grade math, science, and english teachers directing them to fill out an online recommendation. Please notify your teachers in advance that they will be receiving this email.

Standardized Tests
Please send us your most recent standardized test scores. It is your responsibility to send these scores to us or have your middle school send them to us.

  • Scores must be from a nationally normed test, such as Iowa Assessments or Stanford Achievement Test. (Any score that indicates a national percentile ranking – NPR) 
  • Scores must be from your most recent test
  • If you do not have either of these, please call the office to discuss other options (770-578-3286).

Magnet Test
Magnet School testing procedures for eighth grade students not currently attending a school in the Cobb County School District (CCSD) are changing this year in an effort to help improve the process. The Cobb County Advanced Learning Office has partnered with Applerouth Tutoring Services who will now handle the Magnet School admissions test administration. This new partnership was forged in an effort to provide students with more testing dates and to improve the feedback students receive about their scores.

This test is similar to the PSAT and is an important component of a complete magnet application.

The examination costs $5. Click the link below to see the specific administration dates and times. It is the student’s responsibility to register to take the test.
