Magnet Lottery notification for 2021 updated by 5 PM on April 9, 2016. CLICK HERE for seat and waitlist information. Next projected updates: April 16, 2021 and April 30, 2021 by 5 PM. All communication will be conducted through the email entered at time of application.
Students may accept only ONE Magnet seat and still remain on a waitlist for another Magnet Program. The waitlists are disbanded in September 2021. After the waitlist is disbanded for applicants (school year 2021-2022), no further offers for IB MYP DP, PVA, or STEM will be made. If you have a Charter seat offer and a Magnet seat offer, you must decide which you prefer for next year's enrollment.
Transportation: Bus stops will be consolidated and may not be located within ordinary walking distances. Almost all consolidated bus stops will be at local elementary schools, middle schools, or libraries. Parents/guardians will be required to transport students to the consolidated bus stop or to the Magnet School. (Exception: CAT North/CAT South students will be picked up from and returned to their home school within the regular school day). Note: A list of consolidated stops is published by the Division of Transportation each August. The phone number for the Transportation Office is 410-923-7890. Additional information may be found at https://www.aacps.org/transportation.
Applications will be accepted for Magnet Programs for entry in school year 2022-2023 between noon on Monday, October 11, 2021 and midnight on Monday, November 22, 2022 from 5th and 8th grade applicants (Fall, 2021).
