The Boston Arts Academy Foundation (BAAF) raises essential funds for Boston Arts Academy, Boston's only public high school for the arts. BAAF raises 35% of the school's budget to pay for the arts teachers, programming, and student wellness initiatives not covered by the school district. Without this support, our city's young people, living in one of the cultural capitals of the world, would not be able to attend a public arts high school. Boston Arts Academy (BAA) provides Boston's low-income students with access to an arts and academic education not otherwise available to them. BAA prepares a diverse community of aspiring artist-scholars to be successful in their college or professional careers and to be engaged members of a democratic society. Students of all levels of academic ability attend BAA through our academic-blind admissions process. An average of 94% of BAA graduates are accepted to college - most the first in their families to do so.
