"Inspiration, Creation and Realization" is the theme at The Arts Academy. 

The Academy is designed to:

  • offer an interdisciplinary curriculum of differentiated academic and applied instruction in the arts;

  • develop individual talent and interest;

  • instill an increased awareness of cultural literacy and the value of the arts in society; and

  • provide varied opportunities for performance and exhibition.

Students may earn either an Advanced Studies Diploma or a County High Standard Diploma based on the options available in the various curricula. Core courses such as English, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies, are required of all students in The Academy including the honors and advanced placement course options as well.

Most students focus on one strand of the arts and have the option to take courses in more than one of the five strands. During their senior year, students take a course entitled, "Senior Production Project." This course integrates all the strands in required performances and projects. Through their four years in the program, students attend "topic" seminars and master classes which will be held periodically throughout each school year. Students are also expected to participate in presentations and exhibitions during their four years at The Academy.
