- Alphonsus Academy is a school with a 120-year history of providing Catholic education to students in the Lakeview area.
- In December of 2002, all parish groups including the Parish Council, the Finance Council, and School Board, decided to go forth with a new name: Alphonsus Academy & Center for the Arts. This change included a new focus on integrating the arts into our core content areas as well as enhancing our parallel art classes.
- Our goal since then has been to use the arts as a vehicle to create new learning opportunities and enhance existing learning opportunities in order to increase academic achievement for all students.
- AACA has embraced a unique mission to build an arts integrated curriculum complimented by a strong parallel arts class program.
- A faith-based Catholic education is still central to the AACA story, but our arts focus allows our children to engage in learning experiences that build critical thinking skills and apply those skills to real-life situations.
- This crossover and transfer of skills is one of the primary reasons for engaging in an art-integrated curriculum approach: students experience higher levels of academic success.
