Principal's Message

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 kjoseph@bcps.org.

Principal
