Magnet programs are theme-oriented courses of study that provide students with in-depth experiences in specialized areas of interest. Baltimore County Public Schools has more than 70 elementary, middle, and high school magnet programs in 29 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.
The magnet application deadline for the 2012-2013 school year is November 30, 2011. For more information about magnet programs, please visit www.bcps.org/offices/omp or call the Office of Magnet Programs at 410-887-4127.
