Celebrating Our

Second Decade of Excellence

From our humble beginnings with 127 students and 12 teachers in a neglected Southwest Baltimore school building, Green Street Academy (GSA) has emerged as a powerful force in the Baltimore City public education ecosystem by building a succession of durable 21st century school-to-college and career learning initiatives for our students.

In that tradition, GSA is continuing to expand our platform with dynamic new initiatives, like the Elijah E. Cummings Innovation Center and GSA Farms. By celebrating our 10th anniversary in this way, GSA is not only honoring a decade of teachers, staff, and students whose diligence and creativity enabled us to celebrate this milestone, but also taking the next generation of actions, anticipated in our long-term strategic plan, to build even more sustainable career options and economically viable lives for our students and families in West Baltimore.

Green Street Academy Pre-Engineering Students Win First Place in Samsung “Solve for Tomorrow” 50-State Competition

A senior class STEM project focused on the negative impact of paper and plastic trash disposal on Baltimore’s air quality led three GSA students to gather and re-purpose sargussum seaweed from the coastal waters of the Florida Keys, convert it to paper, and create a for-profit enterprise, called EcoTech, making eco-friendly products and a non-profit organization training future students to develop and utilize world-changing green technology created by Baltimore City students.

Their solution won the coveted Sustainability Innovation Award, which includes a $100,000 grand prize of Samsung technology, paid-forward to encourage new cohorts of GSA students to participate in next year’s competition.  Led by STEM teacher, Harry Preston, GSA students were also one of ten national finalists in 2023.
