Students from Watertown looking to get into Minuteman High School must send in their application by the March 15 deadline. The town is not one of the nine member communities, so students cannot apply for the priority deadline.
Minuteman sent out the following announcement:
The priority deadline for students living within Minuteman High School’s nine member communities to apply for admission for next school year is Monday, February 15, 2021.
Minuteman’s nine member communities are Acton, Arlington, Bolton, Concord, Dover, Lancaster, Lexington, Needham, and Stow. Visit https://minuteman.org/admissions to apply or obtain more details about the admissions process.
To meet the February 15 priority deadline, member-town student applicants should have submitted an online application, recommendation form, the last two years of school records (grades, attendance, conduct), and have conducted an interview with a representative from Minuteman. On March 1, Minuteman will begin issuing notices of acceptance, denial, or wait list for student applications that were received by February 15. Limited seats may be available after March 1. The final deadline for any student, living in either a member or non-member town, is March 15.
For the second year in a row, Minuteman has seen a surge in member-town applicants. For the current freshmen class, the Class of 2024, 90% of the students reside in member towns, which is a 15% increase from the previous year.
Minuteman is a regional vocational-technical high school that offers 18 career majors with another coming soon, animal science, and an expansion of robotics logistics engineering. The school is located in a new building that opened in 2019 with an abundance of state-of-the-art technology. Three athletic fields are under construction. More than 95% of Minuteman students enter college or career immediately after graduation.
