Baltimore Design School


Baltimore Design School provides a unique educational experience for budding creatives and problem solvers. Our rigorous design program is recognized for its unique approach to learning in which middle school students get a solid foundation of design and studio skills followed by intensive academics and design study in high school. High school students choose and follow a four-year design curriculum in one of three tracks: architecture/construction design and management, graphic design/interactive media production, or fashion design. Each track includes a foundation freshman year followed by three years of CTE programs where students develop college-ready portfolios and receive career training. Partnerships with local colleges ensure that students who are serious about pursuing a career in their perspective fields are well prepared for the rigorous demands of college programs. Graduates of BDS have gone on to some of the top college programs in the area.
