  • The MLK Arts Academy Experience



    The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Arts Academy is a Dallas ISD Transformation school where "We Bring Dreams To Life!" We love creating an atmosphere where students are encouraged to express their creativity at each grade level.

    With a grade level added each year through eighth grade, current 2023-2024 pre-K through fifth grade students are able to be a part of a nationally recognized fine arts program consisting of dance, art, photography, theater and music.

    In addition, our students will be mentored by our partner arts school, Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts!

    The application window is now open for students interested in joining the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Arts Academy family. Click here to apply!
