There will be magnet shadow days, for private/home school applicants, in January and February; watch for an email, in early January, with magnet shadow day registration details.

For magnet program information, on the right of this page please open the Four-Year Plan of Study, STEM Disciplines, and the Student Contract.  Additionally, hover over “Prospective Students” at the top of this page to access application, admission, and other pertinent program information.

Many students in the band program at Kennesaw Mountain are magnet students. We strive to ensure students are highly successful in both programs, and work with students and parents to make sure there is a balance between band and magnet. Should you have any questions in regards to participating in both programs please feel free to email Mr. Huebner Michael.Huebner@cobbk12.org or Mr. Futrell Corey.Futrell@cobbk12.org
