About Us


Our Mission

The mission of the Lillie May Carroll Jackson School (LMCJS), a charter school in Baltimore city serving girls in grades 5-8, is to offer a supportive 21st century learning environment for scholars to reach their maximum potential through rigorous academic course work, character development and leadership opportunities.


Our Vision

The Lillie May Carroll Jackson School envisions a world where all young women, regardless of their background, have the skills, tools and qualities 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.
