BIA - Bridgeport International Academy

Message from the Headmaster

Frank New Photo Small

Students, Families, and Friends:

Thank you for your interest in Bridgeport International Academy!

BIA is a learning community where students grow in heart and mind as they gain an excellent academic foundation for their college careers. Our holistic approach to education helps students develop the ability to use knowledge responsibly, choose and incorporate information most essential to their life goals, distinguish between useful or harmful exposures, and understand universally-recognized values. The multinational composition of the school community provides students with the opportunity to gain cultural competence and a broad understanding of the world in which they live.

BIA provides a safe and encouraging environment, with a low student to teacher ratio, where students can move freely through their educational experiences. Honesty, respect, and integrity are expected; community spirit based on positive behavior is practiced. Because creativity is highly valued, many academic and extracurricular activities provide opportunities for individual expression.

Domestic and international students take a wide variety of college preparatory courses where their creative abilities are challenged, and qualifying juniors and seniors may take four university courses per year for high school and college credit. Some students also complete internships for credit. While the school maintains a rigorous academic curriculum, students are encouraged to customize their educational experience through elective courses and activities.

Please contact us at (203) 334-3434 to arrange a visit to our campus.  BIA has a rolling admissions policy, accepting applications throughout the year.

Frank LaGrotteria, D.Min.
