The Baltimore School for the Arts has changed the lives of young people in Baltimore for decades, and we’re excited you’re thinking about joining us.

We’re looking for 8th and 9th grade students who want to be part of the next generation of the creative workforce.

We’re part of the Baltimore City Public School System, and most of our students are city residents, but we accept students who reside in any county.

Admission to BSA is based solely on an arts audition and interview — no academic criteria are used. Every student gets a level playing field and a fresh start at BSA.

Applications for the 2018-19 school year are due by November 22, 2017, and auditions will be held January 22-26, 2018.
