Arts Reaching Middle and Elementary Schools (A.R.M.E.S.) is a tuition-free, rigorous, artistically gifted and talented program designed to meet the needs of identified 3rd through 8th grade Greenville County students.

Nominations for the 2023-24 school year close April 3, 2023. Rising 3rd through 8th grade students may be nominated by a teacher, parent, adult, or self. All interested students must have an on-line nomination form completed by the deadline. Late nominations are not accepted. If someone other than the student or parent nominates a student please be sure the student and parent are aware.

Students may apply to a program or multiple programs at any of the three sites of their choice.

Students wishing to apply to multiple programs must complete a separate nomination form for each program.
