Civitas, Baltimore’s newest innovation school, opened its doors in fall 2008 with 200 6th and 9th grade students. The school will ultimately serve grades 6-12. Civitas promotes college preparation through active, project-based learning and community service. Students will graduate ready for college and careers in public service, and as proactive citizens able to influence and shape their communities. The school uses a tiered intervention strategy to identify and meet needs of both students and families, using city services and humanitarian organizations to learn about public service, community development, and citizenship.
