Completion of Admissions Process

If an Accepted student is declining admission, they should contact Ms. Rodríguez as quickly as possible so that the seat can be offered to a student on theWaitlist. 

Acceptance and Retention Policy

Once a student is part of the Boston Arts Academy community, they are informed of their rights, privileges and responsibilities as a BAA community member. These are clearly articulated in the Contract of Acceptance signed by both students and their parent or caregiver. Included in the contract is the expectation that students at BAA maintain a C in their arts in the 9th & 10th grades and a B- in the 11th & 10th grades. Boston Arts Academy offers many opportunities to support students who are struggling with their course work. If a student is consistently on probation because of their performance in their major they may have to repeat the year in the arts, postponing their graduation date.

BPS Registration

All students currently attending a BPS school that are accepting their seat at BAA do not have to worry about registration. BAA will notify BPS of the student’s admissions decision upon receiving their signed intent form.

All students currently attending out of district schools (charter, parochial, or private) must register with BPS through a Welcome Center or BPS Enrollment Office by June 30, 2021 in order to be assigned/attend BAA.

Shadow Program

* Due to the current pandemic, we will no longer be able to offer shadowing for incoming students. * You can enjoy a virtual tour of our future BAA building (Spring 2022) here.*

Completion of Admissions Process

Transcripts

Only after official decisions are mailed, both Accepted and Waitlisted students will be asked to submit their official transcripts to BAA Admissions (fax or email preferred) to complete their Admissions Process. Transcripts allow our staff to place students in appropriate classes, however they are not considered in the admissions decision. Incoming 9th graders should send their 7th and 8th grade transcripts, while incoming 10th/11th graders should send their high school transcripts.

CTE Supplemental Admissions Form

Only students who have been Accepted or Waitlisted for Visual Arts & Design will be required to submit a completed CTE Form, which they will receive via email, to BAA’s Admissions Office in order to complete their Admissions Process.

Admitted Student Events

We expect all admitted students to complete the admissions process by attending all new student events.

Accepted Students/Families Meeting

The Admitted Student Presentation/Meeting date is TBD. More information will be provided about BAA’s Acceptance and Retention policy at this meeting.

Placement Testing (Rising 9th Graders Only)

All Accepted students going into 9th grade are required to come complete Placement Testing. Current dates are TBD.

Summer Orientation for New Students

Summer Orientation is the final part of the Admissions process and is a mandatory 3-day orientation for all new Accepted students. Summer Orientation is tentatively scheduled for August (dates TBD) from 9 am- 12 pm daily.
