ACES Educational Center for the Arts (ACES ECA) is the oldest of the three magnet schools ACES operates. The high school students attend ACES ECA in the afternoon to study creative writing, dance, music, theatre and visual arts with professional artists. It is located in the Audubon Arts District in New Haven.
ACES ECA seeks students from a diversity of cultural backgrounds, experiences and interests in the arts. The course work provides for a balance of training in technical skills and in imaginative and creative skills - challenging each student to create works of their own design, to perform those works and the works of others, and to evaluate this work. Classroom experiences encourage students to develop an understanding of how their art form relates to other art forms. In addition, students receive career and college information and guidance.
The value of the ACES ECA program lies in its unique ability to bring together students who are highly motivated to achieve. This extraordinary student body and a faculty comprised of practicing, professional artists provide a school environment that is productive, stimulating and exciting. Through the years, ECA graduates have gone on to become professional artists and teachers in the arts. Others continue to live rich and productive lives due to this early, intensive arts training - practicing the arts as an avocation and acting as life-long supporters of the arts in their communities.
