Academy of the Arts is located in Naperville, IL. We are an arts education institution that supports students in the Western suburbs and beyond. While our permanent location is still in development, we anticipate it to be on the North side of Naperville along the I-88 corridor to make it very accessible from all areas of the Chicagoland Suburbs.
The State of Illinois does not accredit any non-public institutions. However, they do offer recognition which can be applied for in the first year of full-time students. We will be applying for recognition in Fall 2023. We will also be applying for accreditation from the Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS).
While we do offer an after-school program, The Studio, we are primarily an independent day school with a focus on high-level arts and academic training for K-12 students.
