Green Street Academy (GSA), a non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) corporation, is a public charter school located in Baltimore, MD, founded in 2010. The school’s mission is to prepare middle and high schools students in Baltimore City for college and careers in the 21st century economy.


The Green Street Academy student experience includes a focus on traditional academic success and pre-professional career training. All entering middle school students are assessed, their academic pathways planned, including remediation and counseling, and their progress monitored. The school’s goal is to ensure all students reach grade level in reading and math when they begin high school. High school students continue to fulfill their academic requirements as well as receive pre-professional training, leading to meaningful internships and certifications en route to either higher education or a career path of their choosing.


Once Green Street Academy students master middle school academics and participate in entry-level project-based learning and entrepreneurship activities, they proceed to high school where they select from a variety of sustainability-oriented career content tracks, including Construction Design/Management, Healthcare, Conservation/Urban Agriculture, and Advanced Technology. Underlying all of GSA’s career tracks is a technology platform that enables students to prepare for certifications, internships, and careers, in whatever industry they choose. Industry partners will evolve over time, but many have already stepped forward to assist the instructional team with creating and refining the content they consider vital for success in future careers into the GSA curriculum.


From its founding in 2010, Green Street Academy has continually focused on building a positive school culture, supporting underperforming students, mentoring faculty, and building operating systems and community support. We have created a safe, positive learning environment that has resulted in an upward trajectory of our test scores and our students’ involvement with community partners, like Constellation/Exelon, BGE, U.S. Department of Agriculture, University of Maryland Medical System, United Way, the Baltimore Ravens, and Woodberry Kitchen.
