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.

"TWIGS was a chance for me to be with other kids I was not in school with, to be with different teachers who were serious about art."
