The Boston Arts Academy Foundation is a non-profit organization that was established in 1999 to raise essential funds for the school. Each year, the BAA Foundation raises between 35% and 40% of the school's budget from private sources. The BAA Foundation helps bridge the gap between the school's allocation from the Boston Public Schools, and the true cost of a high-quality education that is both arts-intensive and college preparatory. Support from foundations, corporations, and individual donors is critical to the school's ability to offer a comprehensive arts and academic education. Without such 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.
