Welcome to Bamako International Academy, a small English speaking and friendly international school based in Bamako, Mali. We facilitate time-tested, and quality distant learning education for preschool through high school students enrolled in the renowned Calvert School, in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, and Keystone National High School in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania.
We chose Calvert and Keystone because of their 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 and Keystone's international and trans-regional accreditations, BIA is a member of the Malian Academie De L'Enseignment.
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 fifty students from over thirteen different countries. We encourage all students to participate in various learning activities within and outside of the classrooms. Our main objective at BIA is to provide an internationally accredited educational program in a multicultural atmosphere that fosters learning at an affordable cost.
