Applications for the 2022-2023 school year are 

Welcome to the Magnet Office,

All applicants, Kindergarten through Eighth Grade, may apply for the 2022-2023 school year between October 1st, 2021 through January 15th, 2022.  After the deadline, only Active Duty Military families may apply.  Military families please contact the office of School Choice & Parental Options at 305-995-1922. 

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

Active Duty Military Families

Children of active duty military families will receive priority for available seats. All students must meet the school's admittance requirements (please see the Contract/Criteria). Placement is contingent on space availability and applicants meeting all entrance requirements.


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 (i.e. report cards, progress reports). These transcripts shall be reviewed to determine the student's eligibility for our programTeacher Recommendations are not required to apply for our program.  



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 Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten program for the 2022-2023 school year will be made available soon.  Please visit the Community Schools page on our website for more information. If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Blackburn at 305-258-3676 or e-mail at
