Thank you for your interest in The Math & Science High School. Last year, Chesterfield County Public Schools adopted a new online application System. Starting in October 2023 families will have the ability to create an account to submit an application to the MathSci Specialty Center using CCPS Opportunities. Along with your transcripts and recommendations being completed through this system, CCPS will also distribute acceptance and wait-list notifications.
We will use standardized test scores to assess your present level of performance in reading and math (MAPs: Math and VDOE Reading) or a center created assessement. A Critical Thinking Prompt will be distributed to all applicants in January to complete. If you are applying from a private school or home school, the MathSci Office will contact you to set up testing.
Acceptances and Wait Lists will be distributed through CCPS Opportunities in March.
Shadowing for Accepted and Wait-Listed traditionally is held in March prior to the return of Letters of Intent (if permitted).
Wait list admissions begins following the March deadline for initial offers. We will continue offering placement of open seats through until the start of the new school year.
