• Mission

    The mission of the Baltimore International Academy (BIA) is as follows:

    Baltimore International Academy is committed to providing an academically rigorous, internationally orientated and socially responsible learning environment that challenges all students to achieve. Our programs provide a culturally and linguistically diverse education to help our students develop the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and skills necessary to participate responsibly in a changing world.

    To this end, BIA endeavors to be a true “community school”, partnering with families and local organizations, specifically creating links with French, Latino, Russian Arabic and Chinese community groups, organizations and businesses that already exist in Baltimore, and with the Foreign Language Departments at nearby higher learning institutions to create a vital international educational community that serves Baltimore children of all races, cultures and socio-economic backgrounds.
