Welcome to the core of A3’s Arts program.

Academic rigor through the arts

At A3, students have the opportunity to focus their artistic study in several departments: Dance, Music, Media, Theatre, and Visual Arts.

Each department is staffed by professional artists who are active in their fields and who bring a well-rounded focus to their instruction that goes beyond performance and presentation.

A3 is part of the Springfield Downtown Renaissance along with the Emerald Arts Center and the Wildish Theatre, both of which are key partners with A3 and who offer excellent opportunities for our students. We have state of the art science labs, a digital recording studio, computer labs and a dance studio.

In addition to their classes, students will work with guest artists from the community, take part in weekly intensive writing groups, and integrate internships and public demonstrations into their curriculum.
