Admission

Thank you for your interest in The Park School of Baltimore. Ours is a co-educational setting for students pre-kindergarten (age 4) through grade twelve. The campus is nestled two miles north of the city line on 100 acres of land that provides an ideal setting for teaching and learning. We hope you'll visit the campus to experience Park first hand. During a tour we will offer you the opportunity to glimpse into our stimulating classrooms, observe the co-curricular work of students, and meet personally with a member of the Admission Team.

Our school was founded over one hundred years ago in response to limited choices for independent school education. From the start, this was to be a school open to many — with a varied student body that challenged the common practices of the time. Just as important today, the school remains committed to sustaining a diverse environment where multiple perspectives are heard and considered. Our student body, age four through grade twelve, totals 829 and changes and grows each year as new families settle with us. As our community grows, so do we. 

Please introduce yourself to us. Take time to explore our website, register for an event, or schedule an admission tour. To set an appointment we ask that you contact the Admission Office directly by calling 410-339-4130. You may also inquire online (click here) to receive a September packet that will guide you through the application process.

Feature: 4

Maybe I’ll be an engineer. Or someone who works in a factory. Maybe an astronaut. Maybe a pilot. An artist. Maybe an illustrator. Or a writer. An author. A poet?

—Jonathan, 1st Grade

Feature: 5

I’m a stickler for proper grammar.

Some of that static you hear when flipping through

I’ll talk religion or politics with anyone. 
(I used to be shy.)

to do the things you need to do.  

—Nigel, 4th Grade

Feature: 7

I like to think through other people’s viewpoints — 
to put myself in their shoes.

Turning a profit in business and caring for people are not mutually exclusive.

Studies should be interdisciplinary; that’s the way the world works.

I’m not quite ready to say what I plan to do in life.
There are so many things I want to try.

Community is sharing in something and working together to help each other out.  

I’m a soccer player. I’m an actress. I’m in the politics club. I’m a member of Black Female Forum.
I really love being part of a group and making sure that everyone succeeds.

As a writer, I try to provide people with ways to think about things they wouldn’t usually consider.

Someday, I hope to publish a novel.

Feature: 9

I’m interested in how things work.

I am an athlete. I am an artist. I am a musician.
I am a thinker. I am caring.

If I had to make a metaphor for myself,
it would be a penguin that always wanted
to see what was on the next iceberg.
