When completing an application for your student, please note that a separate application must be submitted for each student. All PWCS specialty programs are geographically zoned. Students may submit applications for 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice programs in their zoned areas. Duplicate applications for the same choice program will be eliminated- the more recent submission will be kept. Incomplete applications will not be evaluated.
