Principal's Message

Welcome to Milford, Officer Mitchell!

Writer, crafter, gamer, cosplayer and avid reader of all that is fiction: Officer Mitchell is a jack of all trades.  An alumni of Woodlawn High School’s Engineering magnet class of 2008, she learned early that success stems from being well rounded.  When she is not crocheting or sewing commissions for her budding business, Officer Mitchell enjoys time with her fur babies, Pan and Esther.

Officer Mitchell is the oldest of six children and the first police officer in her family’s history.  She has been a member of the Baltimore County Police Department for nine years, beginning as a cadet in 2009. 

Welcome to Milford Mill Officer Mitchell!

We will be holding a parent “Meet and Greet” on Wednesday, April 4th from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM.  Please join us to meet our new SRO, along with Officer Reiter, Principal Joseph, and the administrative team.  We look forward to seeing you.

Welcome to Milford Mill Academy

Greetings Milford Mill Families                 

I hope you enjoyed the summer months and will continue with our partnership in “Moving Milford to New Heights!” We celebrated a successful 2016-2017 school year in which our seniors earned over $6,000,000 in scholarships. Through the hard work of our teachers and staff, we graduated 93% of our seniors. This surpassed the BCPS graduation rate goal for the 2016-2017 school year. I am so proud of our PTSA and their hard work this school year. They supported our programs, gave scholarships to seniors, and volunteered for fundraising activities. The Milford Mill Alumni Association also gave scholarships to students and supported special projects. As a community we stayed focused on the best interest of our children and as a result they will continue to thrive.

I am excited about serving under the leadership of our Interim Superintendent Verletta White. Ms. White’s authentic collaboration and communication skills have been pivotal in the transformation of teaching and learning in Baltimore County toward 21st century, learner-centered environments that leverage technology to personalize learning. As both instructional leader and lead learner, Ms. White has led change in almost every aspect of the school system, resulting in surging graduation rates and the elimination of the black-white graduation gap (BCPS website 2017). Ms. White’s vision for BCPS is focused on strengthening literacy and student behavior. She believes this will get us closer to a positive school climate and higher achievement for every student at Milford Mill Academy.

During the 2017-2018 school year, you will see a strategic instructional approach in all grade levels and courses designed to improve our students’ scores on the SAT. We will continue to provide supports for our students enrolled in Advanced Placement courses. Together we will reshape our culture at MMA to develop our children into respectful and responsible adults that promote a safe environment.

I will continue to hold myself accountable for keeping our children at the center of every decision. I also expect the same belief from my staff, parents, and the community. The work of moving Milford forward cannot be done in isolation or within the schoolhouse. This work has to go beyond the walls of Milford Mill and extend to the community. My staff and I need your support and we all must work together in the best interest of our children.

I am so proud to serve as your Principal and I look forward to another successful school year. Please feel free to contact me at 410-887-0660 or via email

Kyria L. Joseph
