Inspiring students through the arts, academics, and the creative spirit.

Grand Opening, August 2020!

Welcome to Wilmington School of the Arts, an innovative new charter school serving New Hanover County.

“Elevating Education Through the Study of Arts and Culture”

We are now enrolling kindergarten through second grade for the 2020-2021 school year, tuition-free! At Wilmington School of the Arts,  we believe learning goes well beyond the books. When the classroom stimulates creativity, going to school becomes an interactive adventure. Our innovative curriculum facilitates critical thinking, problem solving, and self-expression. The result? An open mind, a strong spirit, a connection to community–and the world.
