    Mission:
    Holabird Academy’s mission is to create college and career ready students that will be accepted and highly sought after by the top Baltimore City high schools.  Therefore, our mission is to create students that can, without significant scaffolding, comprehend and evaluate complex texts across a range of types and disciplines, and they can construct effective arguments and convey intricate or multifaceted information.  Students that are able independently to discern a speaker's key points, request clarification, and ask relevant questions, build on others' ideas, articulate their own ideas, demonstrate command of standard English and acquire and use a wide-ranging vocabulary, show that they are self-directed learners, effectively seeking out and using resources to assist them, including teachers, peers, and print and digital reference materials. In accomplishing, this we will improve teacher quality, and school climate as well as use scheduling strategically.
