The program is defined in the:

Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965
Title V — Promoting Informed Parental Choice and Innovative Programs
Part C — Magnet Schools Assistance
Section 5301 — Findings and Purpose

Types of Projects

Magnet schools offer a wide range of distinctive education programs. Some emphasize academic subjects such as math, science, technology, language immersion, visual and performing arts, or humanities.
