A community of engaged & inspired learners

Bronx Charter School for the Arts is a public elementary school founded on the principle that a rich and vibrant background in the arts is a key catalyst for the academic and social success of all students. Students receive daily instruction in theater, dance, music, and visual arts, and lessons in these subjects are integrated into the academic curriculum.

We strive to serve as a model that encourages creativity and innovation in the classroom and inspires students to develop the intellectual and personal fortitude to realize their dreams.

Our Schools

We began enrolling students in 2005 and currently serve more than 310 students each year at our elementary school in the Hunts Point Section of the South Bronx.

In February 2015, the New York State Board of Regents granted a full five-year renewal of the school’s charter through 2020, and in 2017 approved an expansion to launch a middle school. In fall 2018, Bronx Charter School for the Arts will launch a middle school that extends the Bronx Arts model, continues to encourage creativity and innovation in the classroom, and further prepares and inspires students to develop the intellectual and personal fortitude to realize their dreams.

Access to opportunity

We strongly believe that all students deserve the opportunity to demonstrate excellence and that all children can and will succeed when given optimal support and guidance.

Our Inclusion Program provides students with special needs the opportunity to be educated in a general education environment with supplemental support, and our commitment to meeting the instructional needs of all students is further supported by small class size and a school day that is thirty minutes longer than that of most schools.
