BSA Alumni Talk About How the School Shaped Their Lives
The Baltimore School for the Arts came into existence in 1979, and the school's phenomenal success has been pretty well-documented. Its first graduates are now in their late 30s and early 40s, and a list of former students-Project Runway winner Christian Siriano, actress Jada Pinkett-Smith, rapper Tupac Shakur, and Broadway's Tracie Thoms-reads like a star-studded role call.
"I had never been in a place, let alone a high school, where everyone is like a big group of friends that support each other day by day as they expand their artistic and academic capabilities."
Robert Mantegna, Theatre Production
