Welcome to the Magnet Office,

All applicants, Kindergarten through Eighth Grade, may apply for the 2021-2022 school year between October 1st, 2020 through January 15th, 2021.  The application will be available from our Magnet office page or at Magnet applications submitted after the deadline will only be accepted from Active Duty Military families who may contact our school for further information on applying.   

The military orders must be submitted upon applying for Kindergarten through eighth grade. Parents applying for students entering first through eighth grade are required to submit their child's transcripts. These transcripts shall be reviewed for student eligibility for our program. Teacher Recommendations are not required to apply for our program.  

Children entering Kindergarten must be 5 years old on or before September 1st, 2021.

Students applying for first through eighth grade may be assessed through use of a basic skills test in order to determine current academic levels.  Additionally, prior school records including state assessment measures will provide objective data regarding past performance.  Proof of this information directly impacts the likelihood of success this student may have at Air Base K-8 Center.


The Pre-Kindergarten program is for children who are 4 years of age on or before September 1st. This is separate from the Magnet Program and therefore, there is a separate application process.  Applications for the Pre-K programs are not available until early next year.  Please visit the link provided or contact Ms. Blackburn at 305-258-3676 or e-mail at for further information.
