The Children’s Guild Alliance’s Kids First Celebration honors Dr. Andrew L. Ross

The Children’s Guild Alliance, a nonprofit organization serving children, families and child-serving organizations in Maryland and Washington, D.C., will hold its 2021 Kids First Celebration, an evening honoring Dr. Andrew L. Ross, senior advisor and former president and CEO. The event will take place on Saturday, Nov. 6, at 6:30 p.m. at the B&O Railroad Museum in Baltimore.

At the event, The Children’s Guild Alliance will present the 2021 Sadie Award to Ross for his 26 years of visionary leadership of The Children’s Guild Alliance and lifetime dedication to putting kids first and transforming the way America cares for and educates its children. The Sadie Award recognizes people who embody the organization’s spirit and vision of making the seemingly impossible possible.

Dr. Andrew L. Ross became president and CEO of The Children’s Guild in 1995. When Ross joined The Children’s Guild, the organization had two special education schools, one group home and a $6 million budget. Today, with over an $80 million budget, the organization serves close to 6,000 children through two special education schools, four charter/contract schools, three therapeutic group homes, a treatment foster care program and a behavioral health program that serves students in 90 schools throughout Maryland.

Ross was instrumental in developing TranZed Apprenticeships, returning preschool programming to The Children’s Guild Alliance and creating Transformation Education, which puts the needs of the child ahead of the needs of the adult and creates a culture of learning to meet the individualized learning styles of each child using brain-based learning methods.

Monarch Academy Annapolis, a public contract school with Anne Arundel County Public Schools and operated by The Children’s Guild Alliance, will hold a virtual open house for interested families on Saturday, April 17, 2021 at 11 a.m., a change from 1 p.m., which was previously announced.

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.

Among the school’s offerings, classrooms partner with teachers in Central and South America to teach Spanish language and culture. In addition, the school exclusively offers Canopy, a course that provides students the opportunity to learn and practice social-emotional skills utilizing an arts-integrated approach.

The school also offers the eSchool @ Monarch Academy Annapolis, a blended distance learning permanent program option for pre-K through fifth grade students. Instruction is 80% virtual and up to 20% in-classroom and provides the same rigorous programs and services. The eSchool will continue even after Anne Arundel County Public Schools opens for hybrid or fully in-person learning.

The school is located at 2000 Capital Drive in Annapolis and open to all Anne Arundel County students entering pre-K through fifth grade. To register for the open house, apply for admission or learn more, visit monarchacademy.org/annapolis.
