Hampstead Hill Receives $100K Capital Grant

Hampstead Hill Academy is the proud recipient of a $100,000 Baltimore City Charter School Facilities Improvement grant, which will help fund the school's Early Learning Wing renovation. Mayor Sheila Dixon held a press conference on Janary 9, 2009 at the Baltimore Freedom Academy to announce the grant.

Only seven other schools received funding. Mr. Hornbeck, Ms. Chris, Ms. Swann, Dr. Berkeley and Mr. Schugam represented the school at the press conference. The grant will support Hampstead Hill's $2.5M renovation scheduled for this summer. The grant proposal was written by the Baltimore Curriculum Project. Special thanks to Alison Perkins-Cohen and Larry Schugam of BCP for their work writing the grant and securing these funds for our school.
