COVID-19 Update for Prospective Students and Families:

Adhering to strict CDC guidelines has allowed BIA the fortune of keeping its doors open for in-person classes since August. With local COVID cases on the rise BIA has utilized virtual learning as a mechanism to keep students safe during the holiday season, a time when people are traveling and exposure is high. We look forward to having our students back in their desks after the holiday season! Learn More

Project Based Learning at BIA

Here at BIA we challenge our students to be creative, not just through the arts but also in how they think and address obstacles. Twice a year we devote a week to project based learning. Students consider how to: govern, survive, and create a culture in new uninhabited planets, speak publicly and present inventions to "Sharks", make applications, manage stress, fish, and maintain buildings.
