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. See our Information Night video below.

The enrollment process has been completed for the 2021-2022 school year. Late applications will not be available till April for grades levels that have under 25 applications in the wait pool.

Applications for the 2022-2023 school year will be available October 18, 2021.

Thank you for your interest in ACMA.
