Arts

Visual and performing arts are a vital component of an Athens Academy education.
Because we believe that all students have the potential to express themselves creatively, our goal is to nurture each student as an artist or performer, equipped with the tools for success.
As one of Athens Academy’s Four Pillars of Learning, visual and performing arts are a vital component of every student’s education.  Essential in nurturing creativity, critical thinking and curiosity, the arts deepen a student’s understanding and foster an appreciation for other cultures.  We strive to cultivate an understanding and love of the arts by providing a positive environment in which the student and teacher can appreciate and explore the creative process together.  Athens Academy embraces the belief that all students have the potential to express themselves creatively.  The goal of the department is to foster and nurture each student as an artist or a performer and to give each student the tools to be successful.
