Independent School Admission Workshop at Calvert School



Every parent remembers their child’s first day of school. It’s just one of those life moments where you take that big step, hoping for the best—and in this case, hoping you’ve done your best to prepare your kiddo for everything that awaits them through those doors. School is where our children spend most of their waking hours, and the kind of education they receive varies greatly, depending on where they go. In a city like Baltimore, there are so many decisions to be made about where to send our children, and what kind of educational experience we want for them. Thankfully, the folks at the Calvert School are happy to help make that decision making process a bit less overwhelming. Thursday, May 8th, they’ll be offering a workshop about the admission process for independent schools. As experts in the field, they’ll offer helpful tools and ideas to get parents started on the right foot.

Considering A School for Your Child? Tuesday Talks With The Principal Tomorrow at SFA




From the SFA website:


For more than half a century~
~Drawing on the ideals of St. Francis of Assisi, 
~Rooted in the neighborhoods of Northeast Baltimore, 
~Envisioning a future even stronger than our past, 
St. Francis of Assisi School forms children for a life of scholarship, spirituality, and service.


      Since 1955, the St. Francis of Assisi School has been successfully providing early childhood and elementary school education to students in Northeast Baltimore and outlying communities. Serving children ranging from Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 8, the school has a history of preparing children to attend the private and public high school of their choice.
The school is a vital part of the St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church community, and it has a proud history of offering a sound and inclusive environment to children of all races, regardless of religious affiliation and family structure.
St. Francis of Assisi School proudly embraces the values of its patron saint, St. Francis of Assisi. One of the Catholic Church’s best known saints, St. Francis promoted the virtues of a selfless life dedicated to serving the world around him. His respect of living creatures and the environment may be history’s most notable interpretation of St. Francis of Assisi’s life.
The school community believes that St. Francis’s values are relevant to children of all religions, and works hard to instill them in the students. While graduating solid students ready for high school, St. Francis of Assisi School also works diligently to form children of good character who leave the community as young adults aware and respectful of the world around them.

Joo Eun Lee’s experience as an international boarder from Korea sparked her love of leadership. In 8th grade, she was elected boarding president, and the list grew from there: Forum, residential life student leader, 11th grade boarding president and vice president of the school. She honed her self-confidence in the Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) GFS/Johns Hopkins program and as a Jenkins Fellow. “At GFS, I found the courage to become the driver of my life, not a person who takes the backseat,” says Joo Eun ‘13, who is sharing her passion for leading at Smith College.
