A Vibrant Arts Program

Young visual and performing artists thrive at Albuquerque Academy! Integrated into the curriculum starting in sixth grade, Academy arts courses offer countless opportunities to develop and share talent.

Numerous performing arts productions in drama, dance, musical or opera, and concerts take place each year on campus and beyond. In recent years the chorus has sung at New York’s Carnegie Hall, the band has performed in festivals across the Southwest, and the orchestra has played in Washington, D.C.

Two gala exhibitions of student artwork take place on campus each year, and student work is exhibited throughout the year all across campus. Students participate in local and national juried exhibitions, and their work is often chosen for shows in galleries and museums.

The Academy’s visual and performing arts faculty are all practicing artists and scholars, committed to sharing the transformative power of the arts with students of all ages.
