Magnet program application process to begin on Sept. 17 for the 2019 – 2020 school year

Explore the possibilities!

TOWSON, MD — The application process for Baltimore County Public Schools magnet programs will begin at noon on Monday, Sept. 17, with the release of magnet applications for the 2019 – 2020 school year. Magnet brochures describing program offerings are available online now in 11 languages.
Over the next few months, students and their families seeking additional information about magnet programs are invited to participate in the countywide Magnet EXPO!, regional application meetings, and school-based open house events. Applications for magnet programs must be postmarked by Friday, Nov. 16, 2018 (certified mailing recommended), or submitted online by 1 p.m. on that day. 

BCPS magnet programs are theme-oriented courses of study that provide students with in-depth experiences in specialized areas of interest. BCPS has nearly 120 elementary, middle, and high school magnet programs in 32 schools across the county. While some magnet programs exist within comprehensive schools, there are also schools whose entire population is determined through the magnet application process.
