Baltimore School for the Arts

Baltimore School for the Arts seeks to prepare the next generation of the creative workforce by providing inspiring arts and academic training to high school students as well as opportunities in the arts to younger children and the greater community through its TWIGS and community outreach programs.

We are a public, urban high school that is part of Baltimore City Public School System. Additionally, 33 percent of our support is raised privately through our fundraising partner, the BSA Foundation.

Expressions 2019 Now on Sale

Sally Michel was an irreplaceable leader in the BSA community and the early life of the school. She created Expressions, developed its unique format, and went on to chair the gala for 15 years. She devoted her life in the pursuit of creating a better future for the children of Baltimore. Her work relied on the power of community. In honor of her recent passing, we have dedicated Expressions 2019 to her memory. Join us March 2-5 for an extraordinary evening!
