Fine Arts Academies

Putting Creativity Center Stage

Fine Arts Academies offer a rigorous, high-quality and unique educational opportunity for students interested in pursuing an accelerated arts curriculum. These academies go beyond the sequential band, choir, dance, guitar, orchestra, theatre, visual arts and elementary music and art offered at every Austin ISD campus. Fine Arts Academy students experience robust, deep engagement with the arts and have additional learning, performance and competition opportunities.

Fine Arts Academies are grounded in the knowledge that participation in the arts builds many types of literacy while developing intuition, reasoning, imagination and dexterity into unique forms of expression and communication. Fine Arts Academies help students maximize critical thinking skills and creativity, which are essential for the development of the whole child.
