Saint Frances Academy (initially known as the Baltimore School for Colored Girls) was opened by Mother Mary Lange in 1828. The Academy, the oldest continuously operating, predominantly African-American Catholic High School in the world, moved to its current location in Baltimore in 1870. We currently serve over 160 students from ninth through twelfth grade. More than 90% live in Baltimore, with the rest residing in Baltimore County. Despite numerous adversities, our students work hard to succeed. Nearly 92% of our graduates matriculate to a four-year college and 90% of those students graduate within four years. These educational opportunities provide under-served students with a solid foundation and a legitimate opportunity for a better life.
The Academy's mission is to provide the immediate neighborhoods and the general Baltimore area with relevant educational programs designed to give all students and residents a sense of their cultural heritage and giftedness. Students and members of the community are enlightened, particularly the poor and the neglected, to recognize, develop and live as respectful, responsible, and just members of God's human family.
We look forward to seeing you on May 18th.
Note: Entrance will be the Southeast Suite Entrance
