CLICK HERE after February 28, 2023 (predicted for lottery notification) for seat and waitlist information. Students have five school days to accept seats from time of offer.
Updates are scheduled for Fridays by 5 PM February through June when schools are open. Thereafter, updates are scheduled on an ad hoc basis throughout the summer. All communication will be conducted through the email entered at the time of application.
Students may accept only ONE Magnet seat and still remain on a waitlist for another Magnet Program. The waitlists will be disbanded in September 2023. After the waitlist is disbanded for applicants (school year 2023-2024), no further offers for IB MYP DP, Apex Arts, or STEM, including BMAH, will be made. Accepting a Magnet seat will automatically decline any other Magnet, Charter, or Virtual Academy seat offers.
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.
