The mission of the Lillie May Carroll Jackson School is to create an expeditionary learning community for Baltimore City middle school girls, grades 5 – 8. Our core belief is that changing girls’ lives changes the world. Our aim is to develop 21st century learners with a strong sense of community through rigorous academic course work, high quality adventure experiences, character development and leadership opportunities. Our girls will graduate from school prepared for the most rigorous college preparatory high schools.
The Lillie May Carroll Jackson School envisions a world where all young women, regardless of their background, have the skills, tools and qualities to succeed in college and to develop as leaders in their communities and the world.
The Lillie May Carroll Jackson Charter School is a charter middle school for girls following the Expeditionary Learning school design. You may be more familiar with the phrase “project-based learning.” This allows our scholars to learn through the hands-on approach, ensuring a deeper level of understanding and a longer lasting impression. This type of learning will ultimately lead to success, both in the classroom and in life.
