Greenville County Schools is excited to announce the addition of online magnet applications to the Parent Backpack Portal. Paper copies of applications for the 2022-2023 school year will still be accepted, but parents now have the option to apply online through their backpack accounts. To access the online version of the magnet application, parents should login into their parent backpack account. Parents of students outside of Greenville County Schools can create a new user account. Select "Programs" from the column on the left. Then select "Apply to a Program."
