Our Mission: To prepare each learner for lifelong success through personalized, inquiry-based education combining art and core academic standards. We believe in education that is student-centered, community-focused, and relevant to our world. 
Integrated Arts Academy is a public high school founded on research linking academic success to the arts and hands-on learning experiences. Our curriculum embeds culinary, horticulture and visual arts into core subjects such as English, math, science, and social studies. The rich arts-integrated instruction, small school size (~125 students), and strong community partnerships offer students a true personalized high school education.
