    The magnet program at Marietta Center for Advanced Academics (MCAA) offers students a technology-driven curriculum that emphasizes science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics (STEAM). Students who reside in the Marietta City limits, as well as non-residents who meet admissions/eligibility criteria may apply to the magnet program. Applications are available at the school or online. Applications are processed on a first come first serve basis beginning at 8 am on the morning of Monday, November 12th MCAA can serve up to 320 students in grades 3-5.

    Admissions Criteria

    Applicants must have a 3.0 GPA on their most recent report card and nationally normed standardized test scores in the 75th percentile or above on both reading and mathematics. Parental commitment to the program is important, and students are required to abide by the school unified dress code. MCAA begins accepting in-district applications in November and out-of-district applications in February. Admission packets must be mailed or personally delivered to MCAA. Submit one application per child. Applications must be completed prior to acceptance.

    All MCAA students’ transition from fifth grade to the Sixth Grade Magnet Program at Marietta Sixth Grade Academy.


    Registration of a student indicates that parents or guardians have accepted the responsibility to provide the necessary support, guidance and involvement to foster the best possible learning for each child. We expect parents and students to comply with the following expectations. These expectations provide the basis for the parent contract that must be signed upon acceptance to the magnet school.


    Enrollment Standards

    In order to remain enrolled in the magnet program, students must maintain academic, behavioral, and attendance standards.

    Academically, students must maintain a 3.0 (or higher) grade point average (GPA) in all subjects throughout the year. A student who does not maintain the academic performance criteria is placed on probation for one semester. Students who do not have a 3.0 GPA after two consecutive semesters must exit the magnet program and enroll at his/her zoned school.

    A student that is not upholding behavioral standards is placed on a behavioral contract. The purpose of the contract is to provide further collaboration between the school and home in an effort to desist any negative student behaviors. After the contract period, a student that fails to meet the behavioral expectations must exit the magnet program and return to his/her zoned school.

    Students are expected to attend school every day, to arrive promptly and remain throughout the scheduled hours. The parent agrees to schedule appointments outside school hours. Excessive absences and/or tardies will result in the student being placed on attendance probation for one semester and possibly exited from the program for excessive absences or tardies.
