Choice Schools and Programs in SAISD

At SAISD, we believe that all children should have access to a variety of school options regardless of their academic abilities or where they live. Our Choice Schools and Programs offer specialized academic programming designed to best fit the individual interests of students. All Bexar County students can apply to an SAISD Choice School or Program.

An application is required to request enrollment to these schools.  The district utilizes a “Controlled Choice” framework to ensure equity and access for historically disadvantaged students.  Admission is based on a blind, randomized, computerized lottery conducted at the district level. The Choice application window opens in late fall each year for the following school year. For more information and to apply, please visit
