Magnet applications opened early October, 2014 and closed at noon, December 3, 2014 for current fifth and eighth graders. Any applications submitted after December 3, 2014 at noon will be considered late and will not be entered into the lottery.
Students who are currently in 6th grade and who have applied to IB or PVA will not know about seat offers until late May. Current 6th graders to PVA can "save the date" of May 6 for auditions at Broadneck HS.
Late applicants will be contacted if and when a seat becomes available; late applicants do not need to complete an interview or audition until contacted.
Applications for the CAT Centers are due by April 1, 2015.
