Whatever the interest of a child, you will find a school to challenge and excite your young learner in Hamilton County Schools with 14 magnet schools available. If you have a young engineer, STEM School Chattanooga or Lakeside Academy of Math, Science and Technology may be the right environment to develop that need to explore answers to today’s problems. Does your child have an artistic flair? The Chattanooga Center for Creative Arts or East Lake Academy of Fine Arts may be the place to develop that talent and prepare for a major performance stage. Maybe your child has a keen interest in environmental issues in our world. Calvin Donaldson Environmental Science Academy will help the child to think globally and take action locally.

Check out Barger Academy of Fine Arts sculpture garden, explore the Paideia Philosophy that prepares kids for college at Chattanooga School for the Arts and Sciences. Check out the “hand-on, mind-on” learning at Normal Park, or learn to be a future teacher at Tyner Academy.

Some magnets are grade-level specific, and some are for kindergarten through twelfth-grade. The programs are designed to be as varied as the population we serve here in the Tennessee Valley. Magnet programs provide a place for every child to find a home and a place where each child can thrive.
