BCPS Magnet Programs

Magnet Programs released the magnet admissions results for high school programs on April 5, 2021. Parents received an email with the decision, either a seat offer or a wait list number, for each program assessment their child completed.

Parents have until April 16, 2021, to respond to seat offers by logging in to the online magnet application system. Accepting or declining a seat offer will NOT remove them from the waitlist for another program.

Assessment Schedule 21-22 cycle
