We are ChiArts. Chicago's first public arts high school.
The Chicago High School for the Arts (ChiArts®) develops the next generation of diverse, artistically promising scholar-artists through intensive pre-professional training in the arts, combined with a comprehensive college preparatory curriculum.
Congratulations, Class of 2022! As ChiArts' 10th graduating class, graduates have completed over 2,500 hours of pre-professional arts training and will join more than 1,000 alumni who are making their way in the world as artists, performers, educators, entrepreneurs, scientists, engineers, and more.
ChiArts hosts an annual three-week summer camp designed for students in grades 6-8 to explore the artistic disciplines of Band, Creative Writing, Dance, Vocal Music, Theatre, and Visual Arts in a joyful and nurturing environment, led by ChiArts teaching artist and alumni.
ChiArts alumni are pioneers. From millions of plays on Spotify, to touring with a dance company, to publishing their writing, to making art that challenges, to entertaining us on stage and screen, they are blazing new pathways in the arts. ChiArts alumni are also scientists, educators, entrepreneurs, and change-makers!
