The majority of students interested in attending MATHS participate in one of two enrollment program options. The option is determined by the grade the student will be entering in the upcoming academic year.
CHOICE PROGRAM for Students Entering 6th and 9th
Students entering either the 6th or 9th grade who are interested in MATHS are highly encouraged to participate in the Choice Program. This program is managed by the school system and is designed to help match students with a school that aligned with their interests. Please select MATHS as your number one choice as we accept Choice applicants first for these grades. (Students who do not register may still be selected on a space-available basis during the lottery process.) Please go to the Baltimore City Choice Program page to learn more about the process. After completing the Choice enrollment form, please complete the MATHS Online Enrollment Form.
LOTTERY for Students Entering 7th, 8th, 10th, 11th &12th
MATHS uses an annual lottery system to guide its admissions process for students interested in enrolling in one of the other grades at the middle school (7 & 8) and high school (10, 11 & 12) levels. For the 2013-2014 Academic Year, students must complete an Online Enrollment Form and submit it to the school prior to 3/01/13.
Please note that admission through the lottery system is on a space-available basis. Each year prior to the drawing, the school makes a determination regarding the estimated number of available slots per grade level. Students who are not selected are placed on a waiting list. Should a space become available, the school will contact the family. If an accepted student has a sibling, the other is offered admission as well.
After the students for the next academic have been initially chosen, each student and their parents are asked to participate in a personal interview with the enrollment manager and/or one of the school administrators. The purpose is to review the admission offer and confirm acceptance.
NOTE: Participation in either the Choice program or the MATHS Lottery does not guarantee admission.
OTHER ENROLLMENT PERIODS
The school recognizes that a variety of circumstances may require a student to seek admission to MATHS outside of the two primary options. Thus, students may apply to the school at other times during the calendar year. This is done by submitting the Online Enrollment Form. We do suggest, however, contacting the school to discuss our anticipated space availability.
