Afya Public Charter School has merged with Brehms Lane Public Charter School in 2019 to become The Belair-Edison School, a dual-facility PreK-8 school in the Belair-Edison neighborhood. Our middle school grades remain at our Brendan Campus (the former Afya PCS) and our elementary grades remain at our Brehms Campus (the former Brehms Lane PCS). Our school opened in the fall of 2008 and is operated by Afya Baltimore Inc. (ABI). Afya is a Swahili word for health and health is at the heart of what we do. At our school, we focus on the intellectual, physical, and social/emotional health of our students. Middle school is a time of great change in the lives of young people. Afya PCS is committed to providing the necessary supports and structures as our young people grow and mature.
