Between its four campuses, UChicago Charter offers classes in dance, theater, musical theater, media arts and visual arts during the school day as well as numerous arts education opportunities beyond the classroom through the University of Chicago and community partners.

Our core arts teachers are experienced and practicing artists who live what they teach. They perform and direct professionally, publish and sell their work and lead their own arts organizations. In addition to fostering the school values of scholarship, leadership, excellence and grit, our arts education curriculum challenges students at all grade levels to develop strong technique, independent and collaborative creative processes, performance-readiness and professionalism, as well as pride in their culture and a personal connection to their work. A UChicago Charter arts education helps students discover their unique talents and passions and the power they have within themselves to change the world. We develop creative leaders.

To deepen and expand the opportunities our students have access to in and outside of the classroom, we leverage our connection to the University of Chicago—especially Arts + Public Life and the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts—and also partner with our community's artists and arts organizations, including the Hyde Park Art Center, Red Clay Dance Company and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
