Arts & Technology Academy uses the Tools of the Mind curriculum to develop executive function, promote social-emotional learning, and grow early literacy and math skills.

Teachers and families partner to ensure each student’s individual needs are met—setting a strong foundation for their educational journey.

Play-based learning allows students to express themselves, explore new concepts, and work together with their classmates.


Arts & Technology Academy hosts a number of events to engage students, families, and the community. Past events have included: Donuts with Dad, healthy eating presentations, girl time club, Joyful Food Market, a DanceDC partnership through the Washington Ballet, and more. We partner with the Springboard for before and aftercare.
