The City’s Leader in Education Reform


The Baltimore Curriculum Project (BCP) is founded by Dr. Muriel Berkeley and Robert C. Embry, Jr., President of The Abell Foundation. BCP pilots Direct Instruction curriculum at six elementary schools: Arundel, Robert Coleman, General Wolfe, Roland Park, Hampstead Hill, and City Springs.


Baltimore City Public Schools institutionalizes Direct Instruction as an alternative curriculum for 18 schools.


The Maryland General Assembly established the Maryland Charter School Law “to establish an alternative means within the existing public school system in order to provide innovative learning opportunities and creative educational approaches to improve the education of students.”


BCP becomes a charter operator, converting two schools: City Springs and Hampstead Hill are part of the first cohort of charter schools to open in Baltimore City. 


BCP pilots Restorative Practices at City Springs and Hampstead Hill with support from OSI-Baltimore and the Goldsmith Family Foundation.


BCP converts Wolfe Street Elementary into a neighborhood charter school. BCP implements Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA)’s online Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) to assess student growth in reading and mathematics.


BCP launches Leading Minds Education Forum Series.


BCP pilots Core Knowledge Read-Alouds at City Springs, Hampstead Hill and Wolfe Street.
