BTWHSPVA Guilds & Conservatories

The guilds provide support to each of the conservatories. All parents are encouraged to join a guild to get the latest news and information from the conservatory. Guild membership and PTSA membership are separate, however. The PTSA is a school-wide organization of parents, students, faculty and staff who support the school and our students, keep the school community informed, and promote the Texas PTA's mission to make every child's potential a reality be engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. Visit the guild websites to join and get more information.


Guild Meetings


The PTSA meets at 6 p.m. in the BTW Commons on the second Tuesday of the month. The guilds typically meet immediately after the PTSA general membership. Check the school calendar or follow the links to the guild websites below for more information on guild meetings. 




The Dance Guild provides volunteer support, as well as funding for teaching supplies/equipment, master teachers, grants/scholarships for student enrichment, meals for dancers and hospitality for college reps during showcase week. 



The Music Guild is a non-profit organization of parents, family and friends of current and former Booker T. music students whose mission is to provide operational and financial support for the entire Music Conservatory, including the music faculty, students, performing ensembles and classes.



The Theatre Guild supports the students and faculty in their various activities and help provide the best possible academic and artistic experience as our children strive to fulfill their goals and aspirations. 

      When you join the Visual Arts Guild every dollar donated goes directly to help support our faculty and students. As a member you'll get to know other parents and students, be the first to know the latest news, and your student will be eligible for guild-sponsored scholarships.

As part of the Strategic Plan 2022 and with respect to the establishment of the academic departments as one of the original "clusters" of the school, a formal "Academic Conservatory" was established to underscore the importance of our academic departments in the development of our scholar artists.


As part of our mission to build a bridge to the post-secondary and professional world, it is critical to create a direct conduit between arts and the academic disciplines at BTWHSPVA. To that end, the Academic Conservatory was created to represent the unique interests of our academic departments and to find common ground in the pursuit of providing intensive, integrated training for all of our students.
