Baltimore College was a college in the city of Baltimore, Maryland, founded in 1804.[1] It was a private non-sectarian institution, although the president of its board of directors when it was formed also happened to be the Roman Catholic bishop of Baltimore.

The institution struggled to operate for several years. In the early 1820s, L.H. Gerardin, a native of France, was the principal of the institution. It merged with the University of Maryland, becoming the college of arts and letters of the University of Maryland.
