Baltimore School for the Arts provides talented high school students from all sectors of the community with a personally supportive and intellectually challenging environment where pre-professional training in an arts discipline combines with a college preparatory academic education. The school also serves as a family arts center for the Baltimore community by offering performances, educational workshops and extensive after-school training in the arts to children from city elementary and middle schools.
BSA employs more than 100 full- and part-time teachers who provide for a rigorous curriculum both in arts and academics. The core of the arts faculty is composed of distinguished professional actors, dancers, musicians and visual artists, who teach at the school on a part-time basis, providing a critical link between the BSA students and the professional arts world. Many of the arts faculty members also teach in TWIGS, BSA’s after school and Saturday arts instruction program.
