AACPS Division of Advanced Studies and Programs believes strongly in providing innovative educational programs for our students. It is through offering Magnet Programs in International Baccalaureate (IB), Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM), and Performing and Visual Arts (PVA), as part of our schools of choice, that students explore their interests, talents, and abilities in a highly specialized and rigorous instructional setting. In the Magnet Programs, students learn about and explore issues that are current and relevant within their field of study. Students take both pride and ownership in being a part of a Magnet program as they prepare themselves to be future leaders. For more information related to any of the Magnet Programs, please attend one of our Fall Magnet Information Nights.
