PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE:

Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year at the National Academy Foundation School of Baltimore! We are a college and career preparation school starting at grade 6 and going through to grade 12. We have five distinct academies of learning in our high school building: Engineering, Business/Finance, Hospitality (Culinary and Lodging), Law, and Information Technology. We have two distinct academies in our middle school building: Gateway (pre-engineering) and a brand new Information Technology Academy (starting for 6thgraders only). In addition to our academies, we offer several activities for our students that will help them achieve in academics…citizenship…and athletics. We have many exciting changes for this upcoming school year. We have several new people - additional staff members and partnerships - that are coming on board to help our students. We will also offer FREE programs to help our students achieve such as our Evening Academy (for high school students), HSA Saturday Blitz (for high school students), SAT [Scholastic Aptitude Test] Academy (for high school students), Title I Saturday Academy (for middle school students), National Academic League (for middle school students), and many new clubs and teams for both buildings. 

As parents/guardians we simply ask you for your support. Come to our events, volunteer for our School Family Council/PTSO, and please make sure your child does the following:

  • Achieves a grade of an 85 or better in each class;
  • Has fewer than 5 absences;
  • Has fewer than 5 tardies;
  •  Joins a club or team; and
  • Takes advantage of one of our FREE academic programs 
    (usually held after-school or on Saturdays).

We are happy that your child will be a student at the National Academy Foundation School. We expect each NAF student to contribute to our school climate in a positive way [see NAF Non-Negotiables on this website] so that all of us may succeed. We also hope that you as a parent/guardian contribute to our school in a positive way. We believe that students will flourish with positivity and not negativity – so, let’s make a promise to work hard and remain positive. Please view this website for attachments with our supply list and new uniform options. We are so excited to have you and your child join us on the journey to achievement.

The first day of school is Monday, August 25, 2014. Please have your child report to school at 8:05 am. Breakfast will be served at 7:45 am. Every student is welcome to attend breakfast.

Enjoy the rest of your summer. We look forward to seeing you on August 25th.

Sincerely,

Danielle M. Rembert
