The Baltimore Curriculum Project
The nonprofit Baltimore Curriculum Project (BCP) was founded in 1996 with a single purpose: to transform the educational landscape in Baltimore City with research-based educational strategies, intensive teacher training, and extensive support for principals.
More than 20 years later, BCP, in partnership with Baltimore City Public Schools, is the largest charter operator in Maryland with a network of some of the most highly acclaimed neighborhood charter schools in the state: Hampstead Hill Academy, Govans Elementary, Wolfe Street Academy, City Springs Elementary and Middle, and Frederick Elementary.
Over the years, many of BCP’s educational innovations have been adopted by other city schools and have drawn visits from a constant stream of educators from across the nation and the world. Such replicable programs—including Direct Instruction, Core Knowledge, and Restorative Practices, to name a few—have made a significant difference in children’s lives in Baltimore and elsewhere.
