Application process

  • Application for iTech typically begins in January each year
  • Apply online during the application period
  • A lottery is held. The lottery helps to ensure that the student enrollment is reflective of the overall district demographics and that students throughout VPS have access to this unique STEM magnet
  • One requirement that is different than other magnet programs is that student and parent/guardian attendance at one of the two Open House events is required to complete the application process and be considered for the lottery or admission. Open House dates are typically held in January-February each year for the next school year and are posted on the iTech Calendar
  • If the application period has closed, the student can be added to the end of the waitlist by completing an application through School Mint (iTech’s application system)
