Below is a list of Arkansas Arts Academy community partners. These entities have shown passion for the arts and have supported our mission and vision by providing services and opportunities to our students and their families.
Arkansas Arts Academy-Museum Initiative https://www.artsk12.org/o/High%20School/page/museum-initiative--3
Through three years of partnering with Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, we recognized the opportunity to explore further potential with other museums to increase cross-discipline integration. Northwest Arkansas is rich in heritage and support for learning centers and museums. Using Crystal Bridges as our flagship partner and extended classroom, we are establishing connections to the diverse resources and experiences offered by collections housed in local historical, natural, and science museums or sites. Building students’ awareness of the variety of museums and not-for-profit careers is an integral part of this initiative. Museums currently include:
|Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art||https://crystalbridges.org|
|Amazeum Children’s Museum||https://www.amazeum.org|
|Pea Ridge Military Park||https://www.nps.gov/peri/index.htm|

Currently, some 100 students gather on Monday evenings to work under the expert guidance of some of NWA's most respected artist-educators. These young musicians represent a rich diversity of ethnic, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds, many of whom receive competitive needs and merit based scholarships.
The company is Northwest Arkansas’s year-round professional resident theatre, offering a unique audience experience in an intimate setting.

Our after-school program focuses on academic success above all.

A healthy snack will be provided, as well as time to wind down after school before we start homework sessions. Our program has been very successful!
