Celebrating Our

10th Anniversary

From our humble beginnings with 127 students and 12 teachers in a neglected Southwest Baltimore school building, 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. 

Elijah E. Cummings Innovation Center

The Elijah E. Cummings Innovation Center will accelerate the vision of Green Street Academy by opening doors of opportunity for scholars to pursue rigorous college and careers in the field of construction, design, management, and engineering by leveraging students’ strengths, talents, and interests connecting their futures to college or living wage careers.

GSA Farms

As an extension of the school’s urban agriculture and aquaculture programs, GSA’s student-run farms produce a variety of floral, vegetable, and seafood products that are sold to the greater Baltimore community in various venues and packaged formulations.  As a part of this project-based learning, scholars learn essential business skills (such as marketing campaign development, accounting, pricing, and inventory management) and apply those skills while operating a real business.
