HOW TO APPLY TO LASA - Application opens IN mid-fall 2019

  1. Do you live in AISD?
    • If no, you may not apply to LASA High School for the 2019-2020 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • In the parent cloud, search for the "AISD Intent to Apply" tile.
  4. Once you complete the AISD Intent to Apply for a Magnet/Application Program, you will receive a confirmation email from the District. Students should then complete the LASA Application (linked below). All students need to complete the LASA Application. If you would rather submit a hard copy of the application, print out the application below.
  5. Admissions Test (CogAT) and On-site Essay at one of the offered sessions. See Recruitment Calendar for dates/times.
