The Missouri Fine Arts Academy is a unique three-week, residential summer program for exceptional Missouri artists who have completed their sophomore or junior year of high school.

Initiated in 1996, the program offers students the opportunity to enhance their skills in such fields as dance, visual arts, theater and music while participating in a stimulating series of interdisciplinary and co-curricular activities.

Students are nominated by their high schools to attend the Academy.

This year’s Missouri Fine Arts Academy will be held this summer on the campus of Missouri State University in Springfield. It is funded through program fees, grants, endowments, scholarships and private donations.
