    K-12 Neighborhood Schools
    Every student is assigned to a neighborhood school by the student's address. Neighborhood schools are also referred to as "feeder" schools. Addresses in the same area are grouped into a feeder pattern and assigned to the same school.

    K-12 Magnet Schools
    Magnet schools and programs allow students to pursue special interests, talents or career goals. Magnet schools are not neighborhood specific so students who reside anywhere in the District are eligible to attend. Students must apply.

    CTE Programs
    CTE provides students with the opportunity to receive technical skills that are in demand in the job market and college credit. Students will earn workforce certfications while in school.
    Online Academy
    Pittsburgh Online Academy's comprehensive program allows students to work asynchronously at their own pace while being supported by high-qualified teachers that provide visual support.
