We are re-opening the application window for some SAISD Choice Schools & Magnet Programs! There are spots still available at select schools and grades for the 2018-19 school year. Space is limited, so acceptances will be made based on a first-come, first-served basis depending on availability for participating schools. SAISD residents will be given priority, however all students in Bexar county are welcome to apply from May 14 through June 1.


Accept your seat today!

Families who applied to a Choice School or Programs can now view their application status in the following ways:

  • CALL the Office of Access and Enrollment Services at (210) 554-2660 from 9AM – 4:30PM
  • ONLINE at https://saisdenroll.schoolmint.net/ using your SchoolMint username and password

For schools you are on the waitlist for, no further action is needed. Notifications for these schools will begin as early as April and continue through the first four (4) weeks of the 2018-19 school year. For schools you have been accepted to, you must confirm your seat before the indicated deadline. Once you confirm, any remaining accepted schools will be declined automatically. (Your status with waitlist schools will not change.)


Missed the application deadline? Join the waitlist!

If you missed the Jan. 31 application deadline, you may still join the waitlist for a Choice School or Program. Applicants from the waitlist are admitted on a first-come-first-served basis depending on seat availability.
