Make a Gift to The Academy Fund

Your gift to The Academy Fund makes possible institutional priorities such as awarding over $1.3 million per year in tuition assistance and providing our world-class educational programs.


You can give young artists the opportunity to flourish.  Students at The Chicago Academy for the Arts discover, often for the first time in their lives, a community of like-minded individuals who share their artistic passion.  Academy students meet arts and academic teachers who unlock their potential to create, think and do at the highest levels. Our students experience opportunities not available in traditional high schools. They arrive at The Academy with dreams, expand their capacity for imagination and problem-solving, and leave with the ability to achieve whatever their dreams become.

The Academy has always been committed to welcoming the most promising, talented young artists, regardless of financial circumstances.  Alumni go on to remarkable achievements in whatever field they choose to pursue.  They are Grammy Award winners, dancers at international companies, nuclear physicists, physicians and teachers.
