Mission Statement

The Baltimore School for the Arts strives to be the leading pre-professional arts high school in the country. BSA provides talented students from all sectors of the community with a personally supportive and intellectually challenging environment where rigorous training in a specific arts discipline combines with a college preparatory academic education. The School provides qualified students with intensive training in one of four arts disciplines: the visual arts, music, theatre or dance. A further mission of the school is to serve as an arts resource 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.

Description

In 1979, the Baltimore City School Board approved a charter, in the form of resolutions, creating the Baltimore School for the Arts (BSA). The BSA was created as part of the Baltimore City Public School System; however the resolutions provided the BSA with the structure and the authority to design and implement policies and programs necessary to be successful in its mission as a pre-professional arts high school. The resolutions stated "that it differ from other Baltimore city high schools by training students with potential for careers in the performing and visual arts."
