Powerful Partnerships Supporting Baltimore City Students

Lillie May Carroll Jackson Public Charter School & Roland Park Country School

What Makes This Middle Grades Partnership

Each Middle Grades Partnership program is wholly designed by teachers from a Baltimore City public school and its partner private school. Because students differ from site to site, programs do too. However, all Middle Grades Partnership programs—designed to stimulate, not remediate—embody these principles:

  • Creative, exciting and experienced teachers from public and private schools leading each classroom
  • Rigorous and rewarding academic and enrichment activities during 150 hours of summer programming, with a strong focus on building skills in algebra, writing and reading
  • Projects during the school year that bring students from both schools together to better understand themselves and their city, and to make a difference in their communities.

“My son was excited to go to camp every day. He had so many great experiences that he shared with me and his siblings. His favorite trip was AMPED UP! Additionally, he expressed that he enjoyed art. He had his first sewing experience which he said was fun.” — 2018 Parent
