Dear Parents, Guardians and Students:
Welcome to Sollers Point Technical High School – The first public high school in the region to achieve the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2008 certification.
Sollers Point is a ½ day Baltimore County regional magnet school with beginnings dating back to 1948 when it opened as an African American Junior/Senior High School serving the communities of Turner Station and Dundalk. Through a unique relationship with its magnet partner high schools, Patapsco, Dundalk, Chesapeake, Kenwood, Overlea, and Sparrows Point, Sollers Point Tech provides students with CTE technical program experiences in Automotive Technology, Baking and Pastry, Biomedical Science, Construction Management, Computer Science, Cosmetology, Culinary Arts, Diesel Engine and Power Systems, Engineering Technology, Information Technology/Cyber Security, and the Health Professions.
Sollers Point is committed to inspiring students to achieve their educational and career goals by providing students with ever expanding opportunities for advanced training, college study, and careers for the future. We will provide every student with rigorous, relevant, and culturally responsive instruction in order to provide a 21st century academic and career-technical education resulting in globally competitive students who are career and college ready. Every student who attends Sollers Point will complete a technical program and earn an industry certification as a result of deliberate and exemplar teaching.
Central to the magnet school concept is the ninth grade technical preparation program that includes mathematics, science and technology education courses and 12th grade capstone work experience, internship, and college credit opportunities.
Located in Dundalk near I-695, the Ft. McHenry and Baltimore Harbor tunnels, and the Key Bridge, the school is easily accessible from anywhere in the Baltimore metropolitan area. The school sits on a tri-campus with Dundalk High and the Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) near major employers including Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, Holabird Industrial Park, and Maryland Port Authority. Employment in the area is becoming increasingly high-tech in response to the demands of an international economy.
Sollers Point Tech serves approximately 650 students in a combination of morning and afternoon class sessions. We utilize a 3 period schedule for each ½ day session. Class times range from 45 minutes (single period) to 135 minutes (triple period) each day. Triple periods occur during the second year of the CTE technical program. Most classes average between 16-19 students. The smaller student-to-instructor ratio provides our students and instructors with additional hands-on time in our CTE labs.
Sollers Point Technical has a long tradition of excellence in the technical program areas as well as extracurricular student organizations such as Skills USA, MESA, FBLA, and Pro Start. One of our greatest strengths is the pride and support from our parents, communities, and business partners. We know that our parents are critical contributors to the success of our students. I welcome your involvement as we work to provide the best possible education to the students of Sollers Point Tech. I encourage you to contact me with your ideas, suggestions and concerns.
