High School Assessments

Applicants MUST obtain the Assessment Guidelines for EACH program to which they apply prior to assessment.

ALL high school magnet programs require parents to make an assessment appointment for their student.

Assessment appointments must be scheduled by no later than Wednesday, November 22, 2017.

PLEASE NOTE:  It is the responsibility of the parents to:

  • ensure that the applicant attends the assessment on the scheduled date and time.

  • contact the school immediately if the applicant cannot attend or complete the scheduled assessment due to an unforeseen illness or emergency.  Please be aware that assessments will not be rescheduled without documentation verifying the illness or emergency.

Inclement Weather 
In the event that school activities are canceled due to inclement weather, magnet assessments will be postponed. Postponed assessments will occur on the designated inclement weather date.

The Office of Communications will post all emergency closing and cancellation information on the BCPS automated information line, 443-809-5555. 

The Assessment Guidelines contain specific information about each assessment and any preparation required prior to the assessment.
