A.R.M.E.S. is a tuition-free program for artistically gifted and talented students that will be enrolled in third through eighth grades in the fall of 2019. Classes in Creative Writing, Drama, Dance, Strings and Visual Arts are offered after school, at least twice a week during the school year, at the Fine Arts Center.

The online nomination process to participate in next year's A.R.M.E.S. program is now open. Current second through seventh grade students may be nominated by a teacher, parent or other advocate. All interested students must have an online nomination form completed by April 11, 2019 to be eligible for the program. These students will then need to complete an audition to determine their eligibility.

Please print a completed online nomination form for your records before clicking the submit button. Once a nomination is submitted, the nominator will then receive an email confirmation. Parents will be notified by email of their student’s audition time and date by April 30, 2019.
