Hampstead Hill Academy Expansion Project

On April 18, 2024, Hampstead Hill Academy (HHA) and BCP broke ground on an exciting capital expansion project to improve the Southeast Baltimore neighborhood conversion charter school.

The Need

HHA is one of Maryland’s and Baltimore City’s highest-performing and most diverse Pre-K through 8th grade schools. HHA enrollment has increased steadily for the past 18 years, with Southeast Baltimore’s Hispanic community growing 55 percent. Many of these families are served by HHA. 

Today, the school’s 850 students are using a facility built for 450 elementary students. Right-sizing the existing HHA building and adding needed features better support our students and teachers, today and tomorrow. 

As a Community school, these new spaces will benefit the larger Southeast Baltimore community with increased services to students and their families. The new gymnasium will also be an excellent venue for City recreational programs and large community meetings and gatherings.


PHASE 1: March 2024 to projected completion Spring 2025

  • 9,545 sq. ft. of additional new space, including:
  • New gymnasium with seating for spectators
  • 1 additional classroom
  • Student restrooms
  • Foyer area for better student, parent, and visitor welcome
  • New green-top/courtyard

The expansion is being built on the current HHA playground. BCP is raising money for an on-site playspace, located on the new green-top/courtyard, for our students’ long-term well-being and development, especially our Pre-K to 2nd grade children. During the construction period, HHA students will use Patterson Park for recess as a temporary solution.




  • 6 additional classrooms including:
  • 4 new classrooms to the existing first-floor addition (level 2 and 3)
  • 2 reconfigured current classrooms
