Welcome to Family Institute!

City Schools welcomes you, the families of our 84,000 students, to Family Institute, a place for you to come together, get involved and find free resources and opportunities to help you support your child at school, home and in life. A vital partner in the education of your child, you are essential to our success.

Parenting has never been easy, years ago or now, in the 21st century. Here, on the Family Institute web section, you can find tips, resources and workshops to help you stay in tune with and involved in your child’s school experience. You can also work with us to achieve an important goal: helping your child get excited about—and come to love—learning. A love of learning takes root at home and in the classroom but influences all parts of life. It inspires students to follow their curiosities, develop their interests, make meaningful connections in and out of school—and ultimately build a life that is all their own!

We invite you to explore our site now by browsing the links to the left. Again, we extend a heartfelt welcome—we couldn’t do our work without you, the families of City Schools.

Family Institute is part of the Office of Engagement at Baltimore City Public Schools. To contact Family Institute, please-mail or call Demetria Nicholas ( or 410-545-1870).
