HOW TO APPLY TO LASA

  1. Do you live in AISD?
    • If no, you may not apply to LASA High School for the 2020-2021 school year.
    • If yes, go to #2.
  2. Do you have an AISD parent cloud account? (Be sure you do NOT create a new account if you already have one with AISD.)
    • If no, you must create a parent cloud account before you can complete the application information. You will need to submit proof of residence in Austin ISD (utility bill in parent name).
    • If yes, go to step #3.
  3. In the AISD parent cloud, complete the AISD Intent to Apply for a Magnet/Application Program.
    • LASA strongly recommends that students ask teachers in person if they will complete a Letter of Recommendation before you complete the AISD Intent to Apply for a Magnet/Application Program.
    • Before filling out the AISD Intent to Apply for a Magnet/Application Program, please gather the email addresses for your AISD teachers that will be providing recommendations for you.
    • In the parent cloud, search for the "AISD Intent to Apply" tile.***
    • Once you complete the AISD Intent to Apply for a Magnet/Application Program, you will receive a confirmation email from the District.
  4. Students should then complete the LASA Application. All students need to complete the LASA Application. If you would rather submit a hard copy of the application, print out the application below. Please only submit via one method (online or hard copy).**
  5. Admissions Test (CogAT) and On-site Essay at one of the offered sessions. See Recruitment Calendar for dates/times.

* The AISD Intent to Apply may be experiencing some technical difficulties. Please continue with Step #4, the LASA application, and try the AISD Intent another time.
