Academics

Do you want to lead a life of inquiry and learning? Our students are motivated, excited, and curious. They work together with our faculty to develop a richer understanding of the world.

Our college-preparatory program is designed to meet the challenges our students face with our demanding double major in arts and academics. The curriculum is built on the core values of a liberal arts education: inquisitiveness, creativity, and thoughtfulness.

The results are impressive. Our graduation rate and college acceptance rate are both close to 100 percent. Almost all of our graduates go on to pursue higher education, several at some of the most academically demanding institutions in the country.

Student Support

Admission to Baltimore School for the Arts is based solely on an arts audition and interview process. As a result, our students come to us with a wide variety of academic backgrounds and skill sets. This creates a diverse and unique learning environment that benefits everyone.

And we’re committed to helping each and every one of our students be successful, no matter where they start. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we’re able to provide a summer bridge program for incoming freshmen, after-school and weekend tutoring for those who require it, as well as other resources.

In addition to supporting our students academically, we’re committed to their artistic and personal development as well. An assistant principal, guidance counselor, psychologist, and social worker work together to ensure that all students receive the guidance and support they need.
