About Boston Arts Academy:

Boston Arts Academy (BAA) is Boston’s only public high school for the visual and performing arts. BAA provides a diverse student body, a majority who come from low-income families, access to a college-preparatory arts and academic education not otherwise available to them. Our mission is to prepare a community of aspiring artist-scholars-citizens to be successful in their college or professional careers and to be engaged members of their communities. Our innovative arts and academic curriculum yields impressive results.

Boston Arts Academy was founded in 1998 when a committed group of educators, parents, and public officials recognized the need for a public arts high school in Boston. The member colleges of the ProArts Consortium — Berklee College of Music, Boston Architectural College, The Boston Conservatory, Emerson College, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, New England Conservatory, and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston – helped found the school, and remain key partners in BAA’s growth and development.
