Whether we realize it or not, we enjoy pieces of the performing arts daily. We listen to vocalist sing our favorite song on the radio. We watch our favorite actors on TV. We even wear clothing designs and styles made by creative fashion designers. That's right, art is everywhere around us - - EXCEPT in schools!

Academy of the Arts Charter High School is an innovative new school design being proposed in the Fayette County School District in western Tennessee. Our performing art model and art infused curriculum will provide students from all backgrounds the opportunity to experience a high quality education while studying their passion in one of these 5 areas: Fashion Design, Dance, Visual Art, Music and Film /Video/ Drama. To prepare students for college and career, we will offer entrepreneurial courses and a career and technical education (CTE) certification program.

Current studies have shown that art is crucial to individual growth and development and is one aspect of a well rounded K-12 education. Researchers argue that instruction becomes more effective when educators integrate creative activities. Teaching through the arts can present difficult concepts visually, making them easier to understand, boosts critical thinking, and adds joy to learning.

To support Academy of the Arts Charter High School through our charter application and advocate for arts in education please sign our petition! Learn more about Academy of the Arts Charter High School on Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram.
