The Park School of Baltimore Virtual Open House for Middle and Upper Schools This Sunday


The Park School of Baltimore

Virtual Open House for Middle and Upper Schools (Grades 6-12)

Sunday, October 25 • 1 p.m.

Parents and students are invited to learn about Park’s 100-acre campus and hear more about our distinctive approach to learning!

Park’s inspired and inspiring faculty members lead real experiences, virtually, for students and their parents – offering a selection of curricular and co-curricular activities with the opportunity to engage hands and minds.

Program Spotlight: St. John’s Parish Day School



St. John’s Parish Day School, a co-ed Episcopal school for students ages three through grade five, is launching a new STEM (science, technology, engineering & math) curriculum to enhance their interdisciplinary, project-based, and student-centered approach to learning. Promoting the development and application of what has been taught and learned in new and different ways, this interdisciplinary curriculum approach encourages all involved to develop meaningful links in ways that intrigue and motivate students as well as help them make connections within their studies and the world.

The new curriculum will include faculty training throughout the summer, transforming the lower school science lab into a STEM lab, and the early childhood science lab into a Maker Space lab for enhanced project-based learning.

Notre Dame Preparatory School Named RMI Champion of Maryland Manufacturing


Notre Dame Preparatory School (NDP), a 2020-2021 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, was named a Champion of Maryland Manufacturing in the Regional Manufacturing Institute of Maryland’s (RMI) People’s Choice Awards. NDP was honored in the “Fighting COVID-19” category for its service efforts making masks and PPE during the early days of COVID-19. More than 11,000 votes were cast in the program. Voters chose from 143 unique stories in seven categories from around the state; NDP’s category was the largest, with 47 entries. NDP was the only middle or secondary school included in the competition; other educational institutions were colleges/universities.

“NDP is honored to receive this distinction from RMI, and we thank everyone who voted for us,” said Sister Patricia McCarron, SSND, Ph.D., headmistress of the school. “At this unprecedented time, and especially in the early days of the pandemic, NDP was grateful to combine the lessons and skills gained in our outstanding STEAM program with our Gospel mandate of service to respond to the needs of the community.”

Program Spotlight: Oldfields School



The opportunity to learn and grow extends far beyond the classroom at Oldfields School. Offering beautiful surroundings, genuine friendships, and boundless futures, the Day Student Program offers the best of both worlds.

Making up 20-25 percent of enrollment, day students experience all the benefits that boarding school offers while staying close to home. They are fully integrated, whether enjoying breakfast, attending study hall or participating in weekend gatherings. With 18 percent international enrollment, students gain a global perspective, allowing them to see the world in new ways. Additionally, over half of the faculty live on campus, making guidance from trusted teachers readily available. This 24/7 aspect allows students to truly know teachers and classmates, leading them to knowing themselves better. Moments like these are magical, and happen frequently at Oldfields. The result is education with a deeper level of personal connection that opens doors (and minds) to opportunities for discovery.



Get a peek inside artists’ studios, enjoy performances, and listen to panel discussions during virtual Baltimore Open Studio Tour this Saturday, October 24 and Sunday, October 25. Produced by the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts (BOPA), the event takes place on BOPA’s Facebook page at @promoandarts and YouTube page BOPAInc. Twelve artists and galleries are featured in Baltimore Open Studio Tour with video tours of studios, Lunch Live Artist Conversations, and the virtual exhibition “B2020.”  Baltimore Open Studio Tour is part of Free Fall Baltimore presented by BGE and Maryland State Arts Council.  For information, visit www.promotionandarts.org.

Notre Dame Prep Named National Blue Ribbon School


Notre Dame Prep

The U.S. Department of Education’s annual list of National Blue Ribbon Schools honors overall academic excellence among the country’s public and private elementary, middle and high schools. It’s an impressive recognition, but for Sister Patricia McCarron, SSND, Ph.D., headmistress of Notre Dame Preparatory School (NDP), a Catholic, all-girls, 6th-12th day school in Towson, it acknowledges much more than curriculum.

“For 147 years, Notre Dame Prep has, in the spirit of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, educated young women to transform the world,” Sr. Patricia says. “Being named a National Blue Ribbon School is external validation of what we’ve known internally and have demonstrated year after year, namely academic excellence, spiritual growth and the practice of justice.”
