ABOUT BCP
BOARD OF DIRECTORS

The Baltimore Curriculum Project (BCP) is a nonprofit organization that empowers four neighborhood charter schools in East Baltimore with the tools they need to help every child succeed: City Springs Elementary/Middle School, Hampstead Hill Academy, and Wolfe Street Academy.

Neighborhood Charter Schools
BCP strengthens communities by educating all children in the neighborhood. Any child living in or moving into a BCP school neighborhood may enroll at any time of the year, at any grade level, without applying through a lottery process.

Empowering Children and Teachers
BCP schools provide a liberal arts education that builds a solid foundation for high school, college, and career. Teachers receive the best, research-based educational tools available and the training to use them most effectively.

BCP is the best operator because they offer phenomenal onsite curricular and extracurricular development and support. They deliver credible, talented consultants who work daily onsite, side-by- side with school staff to identify and solve instructional and personnel challenges.… BCP’s focus is on continuously improving teaching and learning for each student.
Matthew Hornbeck, PrincipalHampstead Hill Academy

Teaching Expertise
BCP is sought out by educators from across the country who seek to learn more about effective instruction. BCP coaches provide one-on-one in-class mentoring for new and veteran teachers.

The coaches BCP has in Baltimore are among
the most sophisticated in the country.

The Numbers
Of the 850 students tested in 2010 at BCP schools, 70.5% were proficient or advanced in reading and 69.1% in math. From 2007 – 2010 BCP schools averaged a 72% increase in math.
