Many people have been asking us how to become more involved with the Academy, so we'd like to tell you about several options. We are always looking for more people to join us in our mission of 
transforming lives through education!
Join our Professional Network
The Academy's signature Graduate Support Program  mentors our graduates through high school and into college. The GSP program is a key factor in why the Academy is able to boast a 98% high school graduation rate and 88% college matriculation rate

But our support doesn't stop there. We often help our graduates apply for their first internships and jobs right out of college. We provide as much of a professional network for them as we can--and we would love to do more

Will you consider joining our Professional Network? 

J oining our Professional Network means putting yourself "on call" for Academy GSP staff. If they discover an Academy graduate who is interested in your area of expertise, filling out this form gives GSP staff permission to contact you about assisting the graduate in the areas you specify: resume building, mentorship, mock interviews, networking, etc.

Sponsor a Student
Each student attends the Academy tuition-free. Because we are not funded by the Archdiocese of Baltimore or federal, state, or local governments, we rely on generous friends to fund our program. Each student is sponsored for the academic term and summer term and student sponsorship provides about half of our needed revenue each school year.
Adding a 5th grade means we need 30 new sponsors . We're nearly there, but still need a few sponsorships for incoming 5th and 6th grade students this fall. 

By providing a full, partial, or team sponsorship, you will give a young man from Baltimore City an education that will change his life. In return, you will get to know your student through school events and letters that he will mail you throughout the year.
