A record number of more than 77,000 children will head back to school in Anne Arudnel County next week and there are a few changes in store.
The county’s inaugural high school Performing and Visual Arts magnet program will open at Annapolis and Broadneck high schools. Enrolling 95 budding performers and artists from across the county, the program has eight study paths: music, dance, theater, film, technical production/arts management, creative writing, dramatic writing, and visual arts.
The county’s two charter schools are also expanding. Chesapeake Science Point Public Charter School will serve students in grades 6-11, while Monarch Academy in Laurel will have children in kindergarten through eighth grade.
