Why a Fine Arts Academy?

Research shows that introducing children to arts at a young age increases the capacity of memory, attention, and concentration. Students develop a love for learning early, and an immersive fine arts education promotes student engagement, critical thinking skills, and a broader view of the world around us.

Arts Integration

The Kennedy Center defines Arts Integration as “an approach to teaching in which students construct and demonstrate understanding through an art form. Students engage in a creative process which connects an art form and another subject area and meets evolving objectives in both.”

At Price T. Young Fine Arts Academy, students will engage in learning through this process. This makes learning come to life with arts application across the curriculum.

  • Music
