Why BAA's High Needs Students Need and Deserve Your Support

At BAA and BAAF, we believe that talent is equally distributed throughout the City of Boston, but opportunity is not. 17% of BAA's 477 artist-scholars have a documented disability, which may include a specific learning disability, emotional impairment, health impairment, communication, or sensory challenges. In addition, up to 35% of BAA's freshmen enter BAA reading below grade level. Many students struggle with anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues.

Contributions to the Boston Arts Academy Foundation Endowed Fund for Full Inclusion from friends like you will ensure that high-needs BAA students acquire the knowledge, skills, and support they need to share their talents with the world. This includes graduating from high school and being accepted to college.

About the Full Inclusion Fund

BAAF has proudly launched the Boston Arts Academy Foundation Endowed Fund for Full Inclusion in Honor of BAA, Anne Rogers Clark, and Sean Quinn Curran. This campaign will raise $500,000 from July 6 - October 31, 2020.

Over 10 years, contributions to this fund will be fully spent to provide targeted interventions, professional development for faculty and clinicians, as well as classroom-based support. This is a "spend-down" down fund at the discretion of BAA's Head of School and the President of BAAF.
