Collegiate Schools Foundation
Jack Johnson Pannell is developing a network of small scale, economically diverse schools focused on creating new approaches in addressing the needs of families who have boys in K-12 education. The first school, Trinity Arch Prep, will open in the Fall of 2023 with 24 boys, aged 10-14. Jack is a non-traditional educator who established Baltimore Collegiate through an intensive self-funded study of nearly 50 schools, adopting and adapting the best practices for moving the needle on the urban male learner. Jack previously held several positions in politics and government, including serving as the communications director for Congressman John Lewis, the civil rights icon. He also led the largest charter school network in Maryland for one year before launching Baltimore Collegiate. Jack is a graduate of Amherst College and Loyola Law School, Los Angeles. In his rare free time, he skis in the West, golfs anywhere and travels around the world during every school vacation. He is a North American trustee of the International Boys’ Schools Coalition. Jack also wrote a semi-biographical coming-of-age novel, “Lunch Money Can’t Shoot,” with an old friend, Michael Levin.
