2. Application Process

How to Apply

The application and admission process for CAST Teach High School occurs each school year, beginning in November, for enrollment in the following August. Admission is available only through this process. 

Admissions is open to incoming 9th or 10th grade students for the 2023-2024 school year.  CAST Teach is open to students in the greater San Antonio Area.  There are no academic filters.   

Students who apply will be admitted to the lottery pool. Once a lottery pool has been established from the applications that meet the initial criteria, the lottery will be conducted. Selections from the applicants are random. Students included in the lottery pool but not selected in the initial lottery will remain in the pool on a wait list, which will be used to fill additional spots as openings occur. 

Applications are now open. Visit the NISD Magnet Schools webpage for more information. To apply, create an account and begin your application online.


Application Acceptance Notification

All students will be notified of their acceptance or wait list status via email. 

Students who are currently on the wait list will be contacted during the week of February 14th-18th via email about available seats.
