Through the collective efforts of Baltimore City Public Schools, the Maryland Stadium Authority, the City of Baltimore, and Maryland’s Interagency Commission on School Construction, the mission of the 21st Century School Buildings Program is to:

  • Build future-focused, adaptable, sustainable and high-quality schools that inspire learning and support the educational success of Baltimore City Public Schools students
  • Design schools that allow for recreational opportunities for the community, combined with other cooperative uses and school partnership programs
  • Manage the costs of school facility operations by closing under-utilized schools, opening new award-winning education programs and implementing improved facilities maintenance operations
  • Execute a cost-effective and timely school design and construction program, integrating local hiring and student-based learning opportunities
  • Be good stewards of Maryland taxpayer dollars and champions for education, economic development and neighborhood revitalization in the City of Baltimore
