Arizona School for the Arts provides a unique curriculum that interweaves rigorous academics and performing arts. The correlation between playing music and improved cognition is well-documented. However, beyond purely cognitive benefits are the immeasurable long-term social and emotional gains. Performing arts teaches creative problem-solving and builds confidence and inclusivity among students. Our students possess a rare poise, maturity, and civic mindedness for such young ages. ASA graduates are accomplished communicators who are engaged artistically and well-prepared for college, and life.


ASA inspires creative thinkers and leaders through providing an innovative concentration in college preparation informed by the performing arts.
