She completed a Global Executive Doctor of Education (Global Executive EdD) program at the University of Southern California Rossier School of Education. This summer, she successfully defended her dissertation on the need for creating a language immersion teacher recruitment and development pipeline, officially earning the title of “Doctor.” We are so proud of Dr. Freeman-Nepay and this major accomplishment!

    BIA's 2017-18 Yearbook-A Few Copies Left! 


    Dear Parents, Guardians and Friends of BIA

    We are excited to announce that we still have a few copies of our yearbook for the 2017-2018 school year...you can buy one up in the Main Office of the school...



    Enrollment for 2019-2020 
    Our applications for the 2019-2020 school year are now available as a Word document online, or as a paper copy from the Main Office. As a full language immersion program, our entry points for new students are Kindergarten and First Grade only. Students are admitted through a lottery. 
    The application deadline to be considered for the lottery is 3pm on Friday, February 8, 2019. The lottery will be held at 4pm on Friday, February 15, 2019. All age-eligible city residents who apply by the application deadline will be entered in the lottery. 
    All applicants who are Baltimore City residents must be placed before non-city residents may be considered. If placed, non-city residents must pay tuition fees of approximately $10,000 per year to Baltimore City schools. 
    Students entering Kindergarten in 2019-2020 must turn 5 by September 1, 2019. Students who turn 5 between September 2 and October 15 may be eligible to apply for early admission to Kindergarten through Baltimore City Public Schools.
