Who We Are

North Shore Arts Angels Inc. is a non-profit educational foundation established in 2014 to expand the role of enhancing arts education that was established by the Arts Angels booster club.  Founded by a small group of parents in 2004, the booster club provided funds to teachers in the music, fine arts and theater departments to pay for equipment, services and program support not covered in the school district budget.  NSAA Inc. was formed to carry on that tradition and to expand opportunities directly by creating independent programs in the arts that complement and augment the district's offerings.
