IA Application Process

The magnet application for Fulton County magnet schools and
programs has now closed. No new applications to
FCS Innovation Academy are being accepted.


Who Can Attend IA?

Innovation Academy is a magnet school and we do not have a home school district. To attend IA, you must be a Fulton County resident in Fulton Learning Zone 4, 5, 6, or 7. Students must start at Innovation Academy as 9th graders. So applications are open to rising 9th grade students only.

How do I Apply?

Step One: Apply through Fulton County's magnet program. The application window for magnet schools and programs opens on November 15th and concludes on January 15th. You can find more information about the magnet program process on the Fulton County website. We highly recommend saving a copy of your application once you've submitted it. There should be an option to download a PDF. Here's a link to the Magnet Program application -

Step Two: The second step of the process is for the student applicant to create a video or written essay on the prompt in our step two instructions. Go to step two instructions.   

Both steps must be complete to be accepted into IA.

What are the Next Steps after the Magnet Application Process?

Once all applications have been received on January 15th, and processed by Fulton County schools, Innovation Academy will conduct a lottery. Applicants will be sent an email letting them know if they have been accepted or waitlisted. Your email will provide information on how to decline or accept your offer.

I've Been Accepted. How do I enroll?

Information on how to enroll will be included in your acceptance email.  The instructions will tell you how to officially enroll in Fulton County if you are not currently enrolled in Fulton County, or if you are a current Fulton student, you will receive instructions on how to have your official enrollment changed from your home school to Innovation Academy.  


Please email if you have questions about the application process.

Take me back to the main Innovation Academy website.
