25 The Vision of the Barbara Ingram School for the Arts is to provide a world class academic and arts education as the first arts magnet high school in Washington County and Western Maryland. The superior teaching and learning environment will enable students to study the arts for their intrinsic, aesthetic, cognitive, and cultural value. Through a program of individualized attention and personalization, students will be motivated to achieve in a challenging and supportive atmosphere that emphasizes a disciplined attitude and personal responsibility. Supportive parents, distinguished faculty, cultural institutions and university partnerships will collaborate to ensure that, upon graduation, students will possess the necessary skills to choose a career in any field. The Mission of the Barbara Ingram School for the Arts is to provide students with a rigorous, comprehensive, college preparatory curriculum rooted in intense, pre-professional training in the arts that encourages excellence and success in their personal development as students, artists, and cultural leaders.

26 BARBARA INGRAM SCHOOL FOR THE ARTS Washington County Public Schools- Hagerstown, MD Dr. Elizabeth M. Morgan commissioned the First Generation Study Group. Barbara Ingram School for the Arts was recommended as one of their first priorities. Mr. Vincent Groh generously donated the former Henry’s Theatre on Potomac Street to create a school in honor of his late wife, Barbara Ingram. The school offers six specialized programs for high school students, GR9-12: Instrumental Music, Vocal Music, Theatre, Dance, Visual, and Literary Arts. The school opened in August 2009 in the heart of downtown Hagerstown's Arts and Entertainment District. History in the making…

Students will be placed on probation for any of the following: – One or more failures on a report card – Less than a 3.0 in the student’s major – Less than a 2.0 overall grade point average – Student misconduct Students on probation will be provided counseling and/or academic assistance.
