MAC UP Magnet Program
How does MAC UP work?
As an underclassman:
Complete the North East ISD online Magnet application and await acceptance.
As a freshman and sophomore, you'll take traditional high school courses and a MAC UP course that prepares you for college courses in 11th and 12th grade.
As an upperclassman:
As a junior and senior, you will be both a MacArthur High School student and a student at UTSA.
You'll catch a school bus at MacArthur that transports you to UTSA-Downtown where college professors provide you with an additional 24 college credit hours.
At your high school graduation ceremony, you will walk the stage as an enrolled UTSA student with up to 58* credit hours towards a university degree in education.
