Building Creative Minds

At Salt Lake Arts Academy we envision all students excelling throughout the middle school years, with confidence, passion and engagement. We prepare students to become confident and creative builders of their future, equipped throughout the arts and academics to take responsibility for shaping our community.


Creative Minds Take Flight -- SLArts Annual Campaign!

How can we help our students soar through the wild blue yonder of adolescence? By giving them a rigorous, arts-enriched education in a small school where they are well-known by teachers and peers. Our Annual Campaign is our biggest fundraising initiative of the year -- can you help? We invite all families, grandparents and friends to participate in the campaign to help us offer a free public middle school experience unlike any other in our state. Visit our Annual Campaign page to learn more and find out how you can be a part of Building Creative Minds!
