At Texas Center for Arts + Academics, we are focused on youth development through an arts-based academic worldview. In 1946, The Texas Boys Choir was founded. Thanks to its talent and choral excellence the organization was able to open a school, allowing the boys more opportunities to perform around the world. In 2001, the first students enrolled at Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts, a 3-12 grade public charter school designed to foster the artistic talents of 3-12 graders while they pursue academic achievements. Later in 2007, Texas School of the Arts was founded, offering an opportunity for K-6th graders to develop their artistic and academic talents.
In 2015, Texas Boys Choir, Inc. rebranded to become Texas Center for Arts + Academics to better represent the various ways we were supporting artistic excellence and academic success within our students. TCA+A oversees the only fine-arts-focused charter schools in Fort Worth which offer students daily access to high-quality, fine arts instruction woven into rigorous academic curriculum. In addition, we manage Texas Arts Conservatory, Texas Dance Conservatory, Texas Music Conservatory, and various summer programs that make the arts accessible to all year round.
