Secondary Applications

Stafford County Public Schools invites secondary students to apply for Specialty Centers, Secondary Program Pathways, and Regional Schools. The application is now open and will close on January 5, 2024 at 11:59 p.m. 

There will be two application systems for Secondary Offerings in the 2024-2025 school year. The lottery application system is for all Stafford Schools Secondary Offerings (including Specialty Centers and Secondary Program Pathways) and the Academy of Technology and Innovation at University of Mary Washington (ATI-UMW). The Commonwealth Governor’s School (CGS) application system is merit-based and requires additional application materials. Students are eligible to apply to a maximum of four Stafford Schools Secondary Offerings, in addition to ATI-UMW and CGS. To apply, you will need your student’s Stafford Schools ID number which can be found in Parent/StudentVUE. You will also need to provide your email, home address, and the student’s date of birth. For application questions, please contact Academic Programs at academicprograms@staffordschools.net.

The lottery application system is designed to include parents/guardians in the decision-making process. Guardians may set up an account in the online lottery application and work with their child to apply to the Specialty Centers, Secondary Program Pathways, and Regional Schools. 

On February 5, 2024, applicants will be notified of their application status. If applicants are accepted through the lottery system, guardians will be notified via text, email, and the online lottery application system. Notifications for CGS will be sent via email preferences in ParentVUE. If Specialty Centers, Secondary Program Pathways, and ATI-UMW applicants are not accepted on February 5, 2024, they will automatically be placed on a lottery waitlist. As students accept and/or decline their offer to attend, additional seats will open and waitlisted applicants will be notified. All selected applicants must accept only one offer by February 21, 2024.
