Jemicy
HISTORY
 
In 1972, Jemicy founders Joyce Bilgrave and David Malin created a camp to serve the needs of children experiencing difficulty in the traditional classroom due to dyslexia and other related language-based learning differences. Parents of campers encouraged the camp’s founders to open a school, and The School at Jemicy Farm opened its doors on September 12, 1973 with 51 students in grades 1-8.

Renamed “Jemicy” in 1975 after a move to its current Lower and Middle School location on Celadon Road, the school merged with Valley Academy in 2003, creating the first school in the Baltimore area to accommodate 1st – 12th grade students with language-based learning differences.

Although, the relaxed, camp-like feeling remains – students still build forts in the woods and multisensory and experiential learning opportunities abound – Jemicy has become a preeminent leader in the realm of schools addressing language-based learning differences. Highly trained, creative teachers; research-based programs and techniques; individualized curriculum; advanced technology; and well-equipped classrooms characterize the school today. Jemicy now enrolls more than 425 students (grades 1-12).
