Our Vision

Fremont International Academy students are caring, open-minded and reflective lifelong thinkers who positively impact the world.

2020 Applications

Amid uncertainty around COVID-19, our spirit is strong, and we are looking ahead to the fall. School may be out for the year, but we are already making sure that when students return, BCPS will have even more opportunities to help them learn and succeed.

We invite you to join us in planning ahead for an especially stellar year next year. Apply now to join the Fremont family!

We are now accepting applications for students entering pre-kindergarten through third grade in the 2020-21 school year! Applications are not assessment-based and only take a few minutes to complete.


The application period will close after April 10, 2020. A lottery selection will then be used to fill all available seats.

New Transportation Offerings

BCPS is proud to announce that we will begin providing bus transportation to children attending Fremont in the 2020-2021 school year. Our parents told us that school-provided transportation would help make sure their children are in the classroom every day, and we heard them loud and clear. We are pleased to announce this new bus route and hope that this new offering helps promote strong attendance for Fremont students.

Pickup & Drop-off

Morning Drop-Off and Afternoon Dismissal

During morning drop-off and afternoon dismissal, Central Street is a one-way street (no northbound traffic allowed). In order to join the line of families waiting to drop off or pick up students, please take Chestnut Street heading north, then take a left on Pleasantview Drive to join Central Street southbound.

The door at our Central Street entrance is open betwen 8:30 and 9:00 a.m. Families are asked to drop students off at the Central Street door, as we have staff available to escort students into the building. The door closes promptly at 9:00 a.m. If arriving after 9:00 a.m., please bring students to the Emmett Street door and sign them in at our main office. Please note that for safety purposes, tardy students must be joined by an adult when they sign in.

Afternoon Dismissal

Students who walk home should be picked up at the Emmett Street entrance. Car riders are escorted to the Central Street lawn, where parents line up in vehicles southbound on Central Street. Parents display students' unique car codes in the front window, and staff are outside to direct the car line and escort students to the proper vehicle.
