We've Started a Movement

Our mission is to inspire in artistically talented students a lifelong passion for learning, empowering them to achieve academic and artistic excellence.

Connected. Working as one. Our mission is to unite the power of creative inspiration and rigorous academics in an entirely new way.

Who We Are

We are Texas Center for Arts + Academics. A North Texas educational organization dedicated to inspiring young people through an arts-based, academic world-view.

What We Do

We believe in providing a variety of avenues through which to celebrate and nurture the unique gifts and creative talents of our community. Our two public charter schools - Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts and Texas School of the Arts - and two specialized conservatories, Texas Boys Choir and Texas Dance Conservatory, deliver high quality arts training in a unique and proven way.

Why We Do It

In fact, our approach is perhaps best reflected in our name. The combination of arts and academics reflects our larger role in the community - to help ensure a self-sustaining arts culture.
