• School History

    The Vivien T. Thomas Medical Arts Academy (VTTMAA) opened its doors in September 2004 as a breakout school of Southwestern High School #412. The new small learning community neighborhood choice high school opened with an emphasis on preparing students to enter the fields of science, mathematics, and various health care professions. Vivien T. Thomas Medical Arts Academy was created in a restructuring effort to improve the performance of the students previously served by the neighborhood high school, Southwestern. As a result, the school and students face many challenges, but we are working to become a premier health and science school in Baltimore City and beyond.
