Welcome to Bamako International Academy, a small English speaking and friendly international school based in Bamako, Mali. We offer internationally accredited programs from preschool through twelfth-grade in partnership with Calvert School, located in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.
We chose Calvert because of its reputation for excellence, the quality academic curriculum provided with daily lesson plans for each grade level, periodic assessment, and final certification for each student in our academy. In addition to Calvert School's international and trans-regional accreditations, BIA became a member of Malian Academie D'Enseigment in 2009 after its incorporation.
Our small class sizes allow us to delve deeper into our curriculum, creating more intimate and personalized learning for each student and a cohesive vision among teachers. BIA is child-centered and operates more like a small community with more than forty students from over thirteen different countries in attendance. We encourage all students to participate in various learning activities within and outside of the classrooms.
In partnership with Calvert School and Keystone, BIA provides an atmosphere of excellence where all students are engaged in high quality, real-world experience in learning. A highly motivated teaching staff, and in collaboration with the parents, inspires students to achieve their full potential and become responsible citizens who are stable in their learning.
