About Us

Afya Baltimore Inc. (ABI), has been operating high quality public charter schools in Baltimore City since 2007. From the beginning, our mission was clear – we wanted to teach Baltimore’s children to lead healthy, balanced lives. Health was so integral to our program that it inspired our name – Afya, which means “health” in Swahili. Fourteen years later, with two established PreK through 8th grade schools and over 1,500 students across three facilities, health is still at the heart of what we do. 

We promise to provide and maintain safe, equitable, and engaging places for our students to grow and learn with us from the time they enter in pre-k or kindergarten to the time they move on to high school as young adults. Families can trust ABI and our schools to recognize the potential in every child, and to invest in the partnership between school and family. The pathway through these elementary and middle school years will be filled with meaningful experiences, rituals, and milestones — intellectual, social/emotional, and physical — that will ultimately help our students thrive in high school and beyond. 

Afya Baltimore provides the necessary supports -- the healthy foundations -- so that our schools can deliver on our mission of teaching Baltimore’s children to live healthy, balanced lives: intellectually, socially/emotionally, and physically. Expertise in academic programming, facility management and development, communications, finances, and talent development are all key pieces of this foundational support.
