How to Apply
Application and admissions procedures differ and are dependent upon status of residency in Baltimore City. However, both Baltimore City residents and  Non-City residents must have a calculated composite score, determined by the Office of Enrollment, Choice, and Transfers (410-396-8600). Although the minimum composite score for admission is 610, the lowest score accepted has historically been higher. 

If the student applying currently attends a school that does not administer the PARCC assessment, the student must take the iReady achievement test by calling 410-396-8962. 

Remember to bring the following documents with you to the Office of Enrollment, Choice, and Transfers (200 E. North Ave):
  • Proof of student's identity and age
  • Proof of Parent/Guardian identity
  • 2 proofs of address
  • Other requested documentation
    • Academic records
    • IEP or 504 if applicable
    • Proof of custody/guardianship
    • Health records (immunization, etc)
