Texas Center for Arts + Academics is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational organization dedicated to the development of young people through arts-based programs. Since 1946 we have inspired children through the arts with an academic worldview. 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 specialized conservatories deliver high-quality education in a unique and proven way. In fact, our approach is perhaps best reflected in our name. This combination of arts and academics reflects our larger role: to help ensure a self-sustaining arts community.
