Welcome to Boston Arts Academy’s Website! We are celebrating 17 years of Artists, Scholars, and Citizens.

Boston Arts Academy (BAA) is the city’s only public high school for the visual and performing arts serving over 440 students that reflect the diversity of Boston’s neighborhoods. Our graduates exemplify the transformational power of the arts. BAA nurtures the collaborative, creative and culturally empathetic characteristics needed to respond to the challenges of the 21st Century. Educators, policy-makers, corporate leaders and activists from around the world come to BAA because they see the success of our model. We continue to refine, innovate, partner and share because we believe that the solutions for many lie within the arts.
