Miami Arts Charter School

Miami Arts Charter School is a tuition-free public charter school offering a rigorous college-preparatory academic curriculum and conservatory-style training in the visual and performing arts. The Miami Campus is located in Miami’s Design District minutes away from the Wynwood Arts District, Downtown Miami and Miami Beach.

Accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools’ Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS/CASI), the school was founded by veteran public school music teachers Alfredo and Christine de la Rosa. We serve 1,550 culturally and socioeconomically diverse students from communities across Miami-Dade County spanning from grades 6 through 12. Students are placed into their appropriate achievement levels within one of our major arts departments: Dance, Music (Instrumental or Vocal), Creative Writing, Visual Arts, Photography and Theater.

The school draws its distinguished arts and academic faculty from Miami’s rich and thriving creative community and through national searches for outstanding teachers. We select instructors who are working professionals that provide high-quality training combined with real-world experience. Miami Arts Charter School offers an academic program that meets all high school graduation requirements in accordance with the Miami-Dade County Public Schools Student Progression Plan. All courses are derived from the Florida Next Generation Sunshine State Standards/Common Core State Standards and are taught  by teachers certified in the State of Florida.
