Millenium Art Academy's Full Profile

Overview

Overview

Millenium Art Academy says

The Millennium Art Academy is a small, award-winning art and intergenerational high school. The school's exceptional visual art and intergenerational programs with the elderly help students to develop creatively, emotionally and intellectually. Students learn by doing, exploring, discovering, connecting, creating, discussing, debating, writing, revising, and sharing. Faculty and visiting artists work together, along with our school's nurturing support team, to provide students with the tools needed to become confident, morally responsible adults. Emphasis is placed on teaching students to be accountable for their learning, choices, and actions. Our staff goes beyond the call of duty on a daily basis.
