Boston Arts Academy (BAA) is the city’s public high school for the visual and performing arts, serving more than 440 students who reflect the diversity of Boston’s neighborhoods. We offer pathways to success to urban students who otherwise might not have access to both formal arts training and a college preparatory education.
