Magnet Pipeline Project
Part of the Magnet Foundation’s mission is to prepare and attract a more diverse population to the program. That means supporting girls, low-income students, and kids from racial/ethnic backgrounds less represented in science and math fields. The Magnet Foundation’s Board believes that the best way to achieve this goal is to focus on early education to create a more diverse pipeline of students who will be ready for the challenges of the Magnet Program.
The Magnet Foundation is partnering with the new Art of Problem Solving Academy in Gaithersburg (https://gaithersburg.aopsacademy.org/) and other local organizations to provide accelerated, high-quality after-school math classes to a select group of MCPS students from backgrounds typically underrepresented in STEM fields. We will choose about 40 rising 3rd-graders to participate in a three-year pilot program, at the end of which we hope to see a significant increase in the number of underrepresented minority applicants and admitted students for the Takoma Park magnet program. This program is going to change lives, and we need your help to make it happen.
The Art of Problem Solving has agreed to offer significantly discounted tuition, but we need your support to help cover costs for students with financial need:
- $750 will cover an academic year’s tuition for one student
- $225 will cover tuition for three months for one student
- $75 will cover tuition for one month for one student
- $25 will cover the cost of one class for one student

I just donated to Montgomery Blair's Magnet Pipeline Project because I believe we should provide opportunities for all students to succeed!
Going through the Magnet HS program has been one of the most special and transformative experiences in my life. Love that this project exists and hope we can bring more people into the Magnet fold.
Many thanks to Mr. Paul, the Foundation, and everyone else who helped create this program!
Diversity in the magnet matters!!
