DTSMA is a 6th - 12th grade STEM Magnet Academy in the Lafayette Parish School System. We are a full Magnet Academy which means that you must apply through the lottery process with the LPSS Magnet Academies Office to attend DTSMA.
1. Use the magnet academies website to apply for the lottery and select our school as your number one choice (https://apply.lafayettechoice.com/login). Applications open October 4, 2022 at 10:00 am.
The deadline to apply for the lottery is Tuesday, December 20, 2022 at 4:30 pm.
The lottery will be held on February 7, 2023.
If you need assistance, please call the Magnet Academies office at 337-521-7044 or 337-521-7160.
2. If your child is selected in the lottery and is currently an LPSS student, they will roll over to DTSMA at the end of the school year. You do not need to come in and register your child. Please ensure your Pathway selection is accurate on your Magnet Academies application because that is how we will identify which pathway courses to schedule.
If you are not currently an LPSS student, the DTSMA Counseling Department will reach out to you via email (listed on your Magnet Academies application) with information on how to register your child for DTSMA. This will not occur until the end of the 2022 - 2023 school year (once final grades from your previous school have been verified by the Magnet Academies office). A copy of your child's final report card and most recent test scores will need to be submitted to DTSMA, even if you have already submitted it to the Magnet Academies office.
(No other grade needs to reapply to remain at DTSMA next school year)
The deadline to apply for the lottery is December 20, 2022 at 4:30 pm.
Any questions or concerns about applications can be forwarded to Mrs Sherrie Campbell, Academy Director at email@example.com
