The mission of New York City Charter School of the Arts is to inspire a diverse community of young people to engage with the arts as a pathway to rich and rigorous academic learning and a creative, purposeful life. City School of the Arts opened our doors to 102 sixth grade students in the fall of 2016. In 2018-2019, we reached our full capacity of 280 students ranging from grades 6-8. Arts-based learning has been proven to boost academic achievement in math, science, history and literacy, while helping students build capacities like problem-solving, critical thinking, empathy, resilience and a willingness to engage across differences. Our creative, academically challenging program is designed to meet the needs of all learners. City School of the Arts is not a traditional ?art school?, but rather a high-performing, academically-focused school where the arts and the imagination are used to help a new generation of young leaders create, learn and thrive.
