Who Can Enroll?

Wolfe Street Academy is a neighborhood charter school operated by the Baltimore Curriculum Project. Like all charter schools in Maryland, our school is tuition-free and non-sectarian. As a neighborhood conversion charter, our priority is to first serve students living in our neighborhood enrollment zone.

Any Kindergarten through 5th grade child living or moving into the neighborhood may enroll at any time, without participating in a lottery. If you live in this zone, call or email the school to enroll.

We also serve non-zoned elementary students throughout Baltimore City.

If there are no vacancies at the time, students can be added to a waitlist for the current academic year or lottery for the upcoming school year.
