Modeled after the famed Washington DC annual Kennedy Honors the event will be held in the brand-new state-of the art building which opened at the beginning of the new school year and was named for Boston education and arts icon, the late Dr. Elma Lewis, who twice received the distinguished McArthur genius award and a Presidential medal.

“Boston Arts Academy is an institution that fosters a well-rounded experience to mold our students into exceptional artists and leaders. We are so thrilled to be able to have this year’s celebration at the brand-new BAA facility, which was recently named to honor the legacy of Elma Lewis,” said Denella J. Clark, the president and CEO of the Boston Arts Academy Foundation and the co-chair of the event.
The BAA Honors serves as the largest single source of funding for Boston Arts Academy, Boston’s only public high school for the visual and performing arts. The celebration will feature student and guest performances as well as star-studded guest appearances, a live auction, dinner, a lively dance celebration, and more.

About the Boston Arts Academy Foundation:
Established in 1999, the BAA Foundation is an independent 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization that raises essential funds from private philanthropic sources to augment the BAA school budget. 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. The funds raised by BAAF will ensure that as BAA’s student body grows, students can become successful artists, scholars, and citizens.
