Our public school was born out of the desegregation order of 1976 to offer students an opportunity to pursue their talents in various art disciplines, while also completing a full academic program of instruction. Modeled after the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Performing Arts in New York City, we offer students the finest studio training in music, visual arts, media communication, theatre, and dance. Although we just celebrated a milestone year, each and every year features a new and ever-greater celebration of our proud heritage, our dedicated staff, successful alumni, supportive parents, and – most of all – our talented students. We honor the past, we celebrate today and we will build toward tomorrow! Our entire school community is proud of the strides we have taken over the past several years. We grew into a School in Good Standing and continue to celebrate our 85% on-time graduation rate. Our students accomplished work in their various art disciplines and are continuously being recognized in the community for excellence. Our successful alumni are evidence of the good foundation we are laying here and they continue to support this school where they emerged as young artists. ​ We will continue to strive for excellence with the finest pre-conservatory studio training in the arts disciplines in concert with our rigorous college preparatory coursework. ​ After this visit to our website, we encourage you to come back for more – more information about the Arts Academy events, more photos, more news, and more Arts Academy excitement. On behalf of the entire Arts Academy community – students, staff, parents, and alumni – I extend my wishes for another successful year. Ms. Jody Covington, Principal & Alumna Our Philosophy The dual mission of the Arts Academy is to provide each student with professional preparation in a pre-conservatory arts education program and college preparatory academic education. Inside the Arts Academy Choir Room1 Auditorium3 Choir Room1 1/7 Our History The Buffalo Academy for Visual and Performing Arts was founded as part of the desegregation plan in 1977. The goal was simple: provide an exciting college preparatory program for students in the arts and academics that will attract all races and ethnicities. Since our beginnings at 333 Clinton Street, the school has grown in numbers and in depth. In September 2007, we moved to our new state of the art facility, location at 450 Masten Avenue.Opened in September of 1977, the Buffalo Academy for Visual & Performing Arts Magnet School. At that time, the Arts Academy was located on the site of the former Clinton Junior High School, which had been renovated with state-of-the-art studios, performance and exhibition spaces, to accommodate the specialized program offerings of: dance, theatre, music, visual art and television & radio.

  • Kindness Project | buffaloartsacademy

    The Kindness Project @ ARTS is a movement of people, driven by students and teachers, that are committed to building a happier community by making positive changes in how we act as individuals. We want to see a fundamentally different way that our school community interacts. We want to support a community that cares less about what they can get for themselves and more about the happiness of others. ​ Our aim is to help everyone create a better world by spreading awareness and increasing engagement in kind actions. We will conduct Random Acts of Kindness in classrooms and throughout the building. Contact Ms. Kim Jones for more information or to get involved. KINDNESS IS CONTAGIOUS The positive effects of kindness are experienced in the brain of everyone who witnessed the act, improving their mood and making them significantly more likely to “pay it forward.” This means one good deed in a crowded area can create a domino effect and improve the day of dozens of people! KINDNESS IS TEACHABLE “It’s kind of like weight training, we found that people can actually build up their compassion ‘muscle’ and respond to others’ suffering with care and a desire to help.” Dr. Ritchie Davidson , University of Wisconsin Please reload Our wonderful friends at the Action for Happiness organization provided this Kindness Calendar for the month of November 2021.
