The Boston Arts Academy, a public high school for the visual and performing arts, is starting its 17th year in September 2014 with 440 students in Grades 9 - 12. It is a joint project of the Professional Arts Consortium, Inc., (comprising the Berklee College of Music, Boston Architectural Center, the Boston Conservatory, Emerson College Massachusetts College of Arts, and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts) and the Boston Public Schools. The Boston Arts Academy is charged with being a laboratory and a beacon for artistic and academic innovation. The Boston Arts Academy 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.
This innovative school features a college preparatory curriculum supporting integrated and interdisciplinary teaching and learning among arts and academic disciplines. Students explore the arts in both traditional and new media forms. The BAA's program is enriched by the involvement of the six members of the Professional Arts Consortium. Both the program and the student body at the BAA reflect the culture, ethnic and linguistic diversity of Boston.
The BAA is a Pilot School and a member of the Boston Pilot Schools Network, a group of Boston Public Schools that, by union contract, have been granted increased autonomy and flexibility to be laboratories of educational innovation. This includes the right to extend the school day and year for both faculty and students.
Teachers at the BAA undertake a number of special responsibilities, which employees are required to sign off on through the Work Election Agreement. The BAA offers academic classes as well as classes in the visual and performing arts. Often classes integrate artistic and academic subjects.
