At AACA, our curriculum is designed to carefully integrate a variety of art mediums into our core content areas—math, science, reading and writing - while enhancing our parallel art classes - visual art, dance, and music. The arts act as both a gateway to learning and a tool for deep engagement in the curriculum as a whole. AACA attributes its recent rise in test scores to this sophisticated arts program, as well as the constant evaluation and planning of the curriculum in its entirety.
Students benefit from an arts-integration program on many levels - intellectually, emotionally, developmentally, and spiritually. This phenomenon is well documented among education experts. At AACA, we engage in the arts to create and enhance learning opportunities for ALL students. This is a cornerstone of who we are as an educational community.
