BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Baltimore Curriculum Project (BCP) is a nonprofit organization that empowers four neighborhood charter schools in East Baltimore with the tools they need to help every child succeed: City Springs Elementary/Middle School, Hampstead Hill Academy, and Wolfe Street Academy.
Neighborhood Charter Schools
BCP strengthens communities by educating all children in the neighborhood. Any child living in or moving into a BCP school neighborhood may enroll at any time of the year, at any grade level, without applying through a lottery process.
Empowering Children and Teachers
BCP schools provide a liberal arts education that builds a solid foundation for high school, college, and career. Teachers receive the best, research-based educational tools available and the training to use them most effectively.
BCP is the best operator because they offer phenomenal onsite curricular and extracurricular development and support. They deliver credible, talented consultants who work daily onsite, side-by- side with school staff to identify and solve instructional and personnel challenges.… BCP’s focus is on continuously improving teaching and learning for each student.
