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.
