Board of Trustees

Boston Arts Academy’s pilot school status with the Boston Public Schools allows the autonomy for the school to assemble its own Board of Trustees and Governing Council to act as the school site council. The Boston Arts Academy Board of Trustees sets the overall mission, philosophy, and policies of the school; provides fiduciary oversight; and supports the fundraising activities of the school. The Board is comprised of representatives of ProArts Consortium institutions, BAA faculty members, parents/caregivers, one student, and community members with an impressive range of professional expertise.

The Board of Trustees and Governing Council will each meet four times during the school year. Meetings are open to the community with students participating at nearly every meeting. Meeting dates are posted below:
