Supreme Court rejects move to block race-based admissions policy at top-rated Virginia high school

The U.S. Supreme Court rejected an emergency request to block a race-based admissions policy at an elite public school in Fairfax, Virginia, on Monday.

"The application to vacate the stay presented to The Chief Justice and by him referred to the Court is denied," the Court wrote in an unsigned order. The order noted that Associate Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Neil Gorsuch would grant the application.

The case concerns Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, which U.S. News and World Report rated the best public school in the country. The Fairfax County School Board in 2021 overhauled the admissions process for the school, scrapping an aptitude test in favor of a system distributing the majority of slots to the top 1.5% of students at each of the county's middle schools – a system that officials said would increase racial diversity.:snip:
