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.
The ChiArts School Board is thrilled to share the appointment of Tina Boyer Brown as ChiArts Executive Director. Ms. Boyer Brown has served the ChiArts community for 14 years as a founding English educator, the first Creative Writing Conservatory Department Head, and most recently Artistic Director.
Under the guidance of Executive Director Tina Boyer Brown and Artistic Director Greer Reed, ChiArts’ Conservatory Heads and arts faculty provide tuition-free, pre-professional arts training to every scholar-artist.

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!
