AAA Admission Policy


Teachers from any out of state K-12 public or private school, university professors (both in and out of state), artists, pre-service teachers, and other interested educators may apply to attend the Tennessee Arts Academy through Arts Academy America. Arts Academy America is the name given to the national component of the Academy. TAA and AAA are thoroughly integrated and seamless in their day-to-day operation. The fees to attend Arts Academy America vary and are made available on the Out of State Fees page on the Academy website. Applicants accepted under the Arts Academy America banner receive the identical curriculum and benefits accorded to Tennessee Arts Academy participants.

Selection for Arts Academy America is on a space available, first come - first served basis. Please note that Tennessee K-12 teachers are given priority for all slots during the registration process. Once a designated threshold of Tennessee applicants is met in each content area, slots are then made available for Arts Academy America candidates. Because some content areas fill quicker than others, notification of acceptance may vary. Applicants are advised to register early, due to the limited number of spaces in each content area.
