At GEMS American Academy, we provide our students with a burgeoning selection of opportunities to engage in art, music and theatre, both during and after school. Our students come away with a deep appreciation and love of the various art forms, mediums and genres. We encourage creative expression and support our students to create, design, direct or perform, wherever their passions may lie.
Our state-of-the-art facilities with dedicated art, music and theatre spaces support in the production of professional grade content.
