    MCCA Applications & Auditions: 

    • If you are accepted into a Magnet Program, you will receive a notification via email from the School Choice office.  Emails are sent out to all applicants at the same time, typically in mid-February.  The notification will be sent to the email address you provided through your School Choice application, so please be sure to check it regularly. 
    • Once you receive the acceptance notification, you will have 10 business days to RSVP (via a link in the bottom of the email) and reserve your spot.  If you fail to do so within the specified time frame, your seat will be auto-declined. 
    • After you have completed that important step, you will receive a welcome letter via USPS mail from West Port with information on how/when to set up a meeting with guidance to discuss your course selections for the upcoming school year. 
    • If you are planning to participate in the MCCA program, you will also need to contact Melissa Kittles at 352-291-4000 x59871 to schedule a placement audition after receiving your acceptance email and after you send the RSVP
