We’re proud to be small but mighty.

Wolfe Street Academy is the premier PreK-5th grade elementary school in greater Southeast Baltimore. Our elementary-focus and expertise give young learners the best foundation for their most formative years, without the distraction of middle school students. 

As a neighborhood charter school, operated by Baltimore Curriculum Project, we’re experts in caring for our community. We support the unique needs of your child and family with joy, purpose, and passion.

Proud to be a Wolfe

Our mascot, James Wolfe, is inspired by our location on Wolfe Street and that we embody a wolf’s bravery, intelligence, loyalty, playfulness, and devotion to family.

“Wolfe Street Academy strives tirelessly to better serve every student so that they can lead happy, productive, and meaningful lives.”

We Promise Education for Life

We provide great, free public education and support services to children of Upper Fells Point and across Baltimore. We’re a national example of a great charter school and proud to be the first charter school in Baltimore City to receive the newly established eight-year charter contract in 2019. This continues our successful track record of receiving the full renewal term available (five-years) every year since becoming a charter school in 2007.
