Located at 2000 Capital Drive in Annapolis, Monarch Academy Annapolis is a primary performing visual arts school and follows the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme, which challenges students to think critically and take responsibility for their learning as they explore local and global issues.

The new eSchool @ Monarch Academy Annapolis will be an 80% virtual and up to 20% in-classroom learning model and provide the same highly regarded and rigorous programs and services in a blended distance learning environment.

Registration is now open on first-come, first serve basis, for the new eSchool option.

“We learned with the COVID-19 school closures, that some students truly excelled and thrived in a distance learning model and we are proud to offer our new eSchool option as a permanent program at Monarch Academy Annapolis”, said Kathy Lane, chief of educational services for The Children’s Guild Alliance, which operates Monarch Academy Annapolis. “This is an opportunity to transform the way America cares for and educates its youth. This innovative option for families in the Annapolis area provides a new, parallel approach to our academic programming rooted in International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme, arts integration and social emotional skill building.”

Monarch Academy Annapolis offers new facilities, creative-learning environments, an outdoor classroom and activity areas. In addition, before- and after-school clubs focus on science, technology, engineering, math and the arts. For students enrolled in eSchool, and while all students engage in distance learning, the school provides Chromebooks and Wi-Fi hotspots to all enrolled students.

The Children’s Guild Alliance Celebrates National Foster Care Month and Holds Online Foster Care Information Session on May 28, 2020

The Children’s Guild Alliance’s is proud to celebrate in May National Foster Care Month and salutes the compassionate people who open their hearts and their home to make a difference in a child’s life by serving as foster parents. National Foster Care Month is a time when public attention is focused on the year-round needs of over half a million children and youth in foster care, and the unsung heroes who serve as foster parents. We applaud their caring, commitment and continuing support. Without the ongoing efforts of foster parents, many children will end up facing life’s challenges all alone.

“Even during these challenging times, The Children’s Guild and our licensed foster parent can offer children in foster care the guidance, stability and love that are so essential for becoming successful adults,” said Terry M. Baisden, LCSW-C, Family Life Education director for The Children’s Guild. “We greatly appreciate and recognize all that foster parents do to help change a lifetime for a child in need.”

Currently, in Baltimore region and across the country, there is a shortage of foster parents and foster homes and the COVID-19 crisis has magnified this situation and the urgency.

In celebration of National Foster Care Month and to encourage more individuals and families in the Baltimore region to become foster parents, The Children’s Guild’s Treatment Foster Care program will hold an online information session for prospective foster parents on Thursday, May 28, 2020 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. The Children’s Guild is recruiting foster parents for children who have experienced trauma or other challenges in need of homes. Treatment foster care is a treatment-oriented approach to caring for a child with special needs.

The information session offers a basic introduction to becoming a foster parent and is open to anyone interested in the fostering process. Interested parties only need to attend one session. The session addresses the requirements for becoming a foster parent including home assessment, major clearances and required documentation as well as home study and preservice training. Attending an information session constitutes the first phase of The Children’s Guild Treatment Foster Care preservice training and preparation.

The Children’s Guild Alliance offers the second phase of preservice training in the form of P.R.I.D.E. (Parent Resources for Information Development and Education) Foster Parent Training with the next training starting in June online.

To attend the May 28 information session, register online at childrensguild.org/tfc. For more information, visit childrensguild.org/tfc , call 410-444-3804, ext. 1297 or email tfc@childrensguild.org.
