About MACA

St. Landry Parish opened The Magnet Academy for Cultural Arts in 2005. The school bridges creativity and core curriculum subjects. Along with all necessary subjects (Math, English, Social Studies, Science, etc.) the school provides instruction in six talent areas - drama, dance, creative writing, visual art, chorus and band. Each year, MACA hopefuls audition to gain entry to the school.  Though students spend an hour a day in their talent areas, they do not miss out on required subjects. In fact, they excel - MACA boasts high LEAP and GEE scores above the state and parish averages. Enrollment is open to all St. Landry Parish students.  Those interested in auditioning should contact the school for more information. To download a copy of the admissions form, click here.
