Choice Application Information

PLEASE NOTE: If your child was in a Magnet program during the 2021-2022 school year and plans to return to the same program for the 2022-2023 program, parents do NOT need to fill out another Choice Application. Simply enroll your child during the regular online enrollment window, which begins April 1, 2022.

Kokomo School Corporation officials are proud to offer our families diverse quality learning options that have been created to meet our students’ different learning styles. The Early Enrollment window for Parent Choice Applications is open from February 21st through March 25th for Kokomo Schools Magnet programs for students in preschool through 8th grade. The Magnet programs include the Outdoor Learning program for preschool through 2nd-grade students at Boulevard STEM Elementary School; the Integrated Arts programs for K through 5th-grade students at the Wallace Elementary School of Integrated Arts and for 6th to 8th-grade students at Central Middle International School; the International Baccalaureate (IB) program for K through 5th grade students at Sycamore Elementary International School and Lafayette Park International School and 6th through 8th grade students are Central Middle International School; the KEY (High Ability) program for K through 5th-grade students at Sycamore Elementary International School and for 6th to 8th-grade students at Central Middle International School; and the Neighborhood 8th-grade Career School program at both Bon Air Career Middle School and Maple Crest STEM Middle School.

Families interested in any of these Magnet programs need to complete a 2022-2023 Parent Choice Application before the March 25th deadline to be considered for acceptance into these Magnet programs. Remember, NO choice application is necessary if students are staying in their current (2021-2022) Magnet program. All Choice applications will be considered, and selection will be based on space availability, as well as entrance (screening) requirements for some Magnet programs, including Outdoor Learning, Integrated Arts, KEY (High Ability), and the 8th-grade Career schools.

Outdoor Learning students at Boulevard spend up to two hours outdoors daily – in rain, sun, or snow – applying their classroom knowledge. The full-day Outdoor preschool class is for 4 year olds only, and parents must provide transportation.

Integrated Arts students at Wallace concentrate on a core curriculum with instructional methods tied closely to visual arts, dance, movement, and drama. Wallace students annually post some of the highest elementary State test scores in the area. The Integrated Arts curriculum at Central is designed to diffuse arts methods into all subject areas, while all Central students have the opportunity to participate in Orchestra and Keyboarding (piano) during the school day.

The KEY (High Ability) program at Sycamore Elementary recognizes students who perform at an exceptional level of accomplishment in one or more core academic areas, and KEY students study in an accelerated learning environment. At Central, KEY students benefit from an enriched curriculum, where the focus is on depth of knowledge and real-world applications.

International Baccalaureate (IB) students at Lafayette Park International School, Sycamore International School and Central Middle International School attend authorized IB World schools where they receive challenging academic instruction with a global perspective. IB students learn how the world works through inquiry-based lessons, while realizing what it takes to be successful in life, and in our global society.

The Career schools for qualified 8th-graders allow these students the opportunity to investigate a career area for high school credit. Students in the Career schools attend classes both at Bon Air/Maple Crest and at the Kokomo Area Career Center. While at the career center on the Kokomo High School campus, 8th-grade students take high school level classes for high school credit.
