Admission Information

Mixed Media Face Painting

Arts & Communication Magnet Academy (ACMA) serves students in grades 6-12 who have a strong interest in the arts, or who are proficient in a particular arts discipline. ACMA students desire a rigorous arts integrated education. ACMA offers students a rich, pre-professional experience that includes dance, instrumental and vocal music, theater, visual and electronic arts and creative writing.


The decision to attend an arts magnet school is one that must be made by the entire family. When the “fit” is right, school becomes a working relationship between the parents, student, and faculty.

Applications are available on the District Learning Options web page during the open season from mid-October through the beginning of December.

Thank you for your interest in ACMA.
