Sollers Point Tech is a Baltimore County regional magnet school with beginnings dating back to 1944. Through a unique relationship with its magnet partner high schools, Patapsco, Dundalk, Chesapeake, Kenwood, Overlea, and Sparrows Point, Sollers Point Tech provides students with technical programs in three clusters. Concentrations in Communications Technologies; Health and Human Services; and Engineering, Construction, and Transportation provide students with ever expanding opportunities for advanced training, college study, and careers for the future. Central to the magnet school concept is the ninth grade technical preparation program.

SOLLERS POINT FAQ'S

Who attends Sollers Point?

There are approximately 775 students that attend Sollers Point Tech throughout the day. They come from a variety of schools including Dundalk, Patapsco, Sparrows Point, Chesapeake, Kenwood, and Overlea. Some parents even drive their son/daughter from as far away as Parkville, Perry Hall, Loch Raven and Pikesville.

Where is Sollers Point Technical High School?

We are located in Dundalk, MD at the intersection of Sollers Point Road and Delvale Avenue. Our building is on a tri-campus consisting of Dundalk High and the Community College of Baltimore County. When you enter the new building you will understand the size and scale of the complex. Sollers Point offers classes on the east side of the complex. Dundalk High offers classes on the west side of the complex. The two schools are connected in the center by bridges on the 2nd and 3rd levels. Both schools share a library media center, commons, cafeteria, theater, and gymnasium.

I heard a rumor that you must attend the Dundalk High in order to attend Sollers Point. Is this true?

No, this is not true. Sollers Point remains a half day technical center providing courses for many magnet students in the northeast and southeast areas of Baltimore County.

Why is Sollers Point a half-day technical center?

Sollers Point does not have enough classrooms on the east side of the complex to offer all of the required subjects for high school graduation. Students are transported to their "home schools" for liberal arts courses, athletics, lunch, and other activities. The exception is Dundalk High. Those students walk across the bridge.

Does Sollers Point offer breakfast or lunch options?

Morning students may eat breakfast in the cafeteria. Lunch is not available to Sollers Point students unless they are in the building the entire day as a combination Dundalk/Sollers student.

What will I learn at Sollers?

Sollers Point offers 10 technical programs. Each technical program is a certified Maryland State Department of Education career completer program.

What about extra-curricular activities at my home school?

Students are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular activities at their home school. Transportation to the home schools is provided at the end of the school day. This allows students to participate in things such as sports, student council, honor society, and club events. Approximately 50% of the students attending Sollers Point participate in extra-curricular activities.

What is the school procedure related to the use of personal electronic devices and/or cell phones?

Electronic devices may be used in the hallways before 7:40 a.m. and 11:40 a.m. and between classes. They may not be used in the classroom unless authorization is received from your instructor.

What happens if you are suspended from your home school or Sollers Point?

If a student is suspended from either school, they will be suspended from both schools until a parent/guardian meets with the administration to discuss the BCPS Student Handbook violation(s).

What happens if BCPS makes a decision to open schools one (1) hour late?

Sollers Point will be open for business. Homeroom will begin at 8:45 AM. Morning classes will be reduced by 15-20 minutes.

What happens if BCPS makes a decision to open schools two (2) hours late?

The majority of "AM" students will not attend Sollers Point Tech. "AM" students will report directly to their home school by 9:30 am. Students who attend Dundalk will report to their AM Sollers Point homeroom for 30 minutes of instruction.

Am I allowed to switch or change career majors?

A program change must be approved by the Office of Magnet Programs. Please see your guidance counselor to discuss program specifics.

Am I allowed to transfer back to my home school for a full schedule during the summer?

Yes. The BCPS academic calendar begins Sept. 3, 2019 and runs through June 19, 2020. You may transfer anytime during the summer break by calling both Sollers Point Tech and your home school to relinquish your magnet seat. Only a parent/guardian can relinquish a magnet seat placement.

Am I allowed to transfer back to my home school during the school year?

Transferring between September and May is not preferred or recommended as high schools use a variety of schedules. Only a parent/guardian can relinquish a magnet seat placement. A transfer back to your home school during the school year may result in credit loss towards graduation.
