Our mission is to support Boston Arts Academy as they educate the next generation of artists, scholars and global citizens.
In December 2017, the City of Boston and Commonwealth of Massachusetts unanimously approved $125 million to build a state-of-the-art facility at 174 Ipswich Street.
We launched the Building Our Future campaign to raise $32 million over six years to support arts programming at the new Boston Arts Academy building.

The new facility provides better rehearsal studios, high-tech fashion and fine art studios, a cutting-edge STEAM (STEM + Arts) laboratory, a rooftop recital hall, and professional theatres.
With donors like you, Building Our Future will ensure that as BAA’s student body grows, our students can become successful artists, scholars and global citizens —this year, next year, and for years to come.
Boston Arts Academy is a pilot school whose faculty and students thrive at the intersection of artistic and academic innovation. BAA prepares a diverse community of aspiring artists, scholars, and global citizens to succeed in their chosen professional paths as well as become active, engaged members of their communities.
BAA graduates are teachers, nurses, scientists, lawyers, artists, and more importantly, leaders in their communities. Many are the first in their families to graduate from college. Furthermore, Boston Arts Academy’s Black, Latino, and low-income alumni graduate from college at a rate that exceeds both the district and state averages.
