College of Dupage

“The Academy of the Arts was an amazing concept and now is becoming a reality in the Naperville area. The school’s focus on academics and the arts is a perfect combination that will nurture creative thinking and innovation in all areas of education. This school will be a ground-breaking and very welcome addition to our community.”
Anthony Venezia, Animation Department Chair

Arts Dupage

“The prospect of opening the Academy of the Arts in Naperville is an exciting one. Students will develop a capacity for communication, self-confidence, and problem-solving skills which will better prepare them for the college experience and further their success in professional careers in the arts.”
Deborah Venezia, Director

Century Walk

“Century Walk Corporation has been working with students on mural projects in our community. The opening of the Academy of the Arts will be a tremendous support to these young people as they explore opportunities in the arts.”
Brand Bobosky, President

Bev Patterson Frier

“Culture is the backbone of any community. One of the big advantages for a parent is that the students will be able to study their chosen area of the arts at their school. I used to pick up my two kids at their schools when it was out in the afternoon and then drive them to their respective instructors in downtown Chicago. This will be a fantastic addition to our entire region. I am thrilled to support this project.”
Bev Patterson Frier

Road Show, Inc

“Naperville has always been a community for the arts. The arrival of Academy of the Arts promises to bring a new level of academic and arts education to our next generation of young artists, giving them a road map for a future enriched by the arts.”
