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.
