CREATIVITY DOESN'T CLOSE DOWN

These are unprecedented times but our student's dreams and futures can't afford to be put on hold. We've never been more committed to seeing that our students succeed and find new ways of expressing themselves. Whether it's creating digital graphic novels that teach science concepts or developing a video game that explores the impact of climate change, we're offering more ways than ever for students to receive a quality education regardless of their zip code (or electronic device!).

The School of Interactive Arts (SIA) teaches middle and high school students the art and science of game development, a field full of opportunity but lacking in workforce diversity. Here's how we're continuing to help students prepare for careers in creativity and technology.

🕹 We're serving over 900 High School students in New York City public school virtual classrooms through our SIA Foundations Program.

🕹 We're helping 500 Middle School students learn computational thinking and game design skills with our SIA Middle School Program.

🕹 We're teaching 150 students in our SIA Mastery Program how to design and develop their own video games on the Unity Game Engine through Discord. 

🕹 We've partnered with AT&T to deliver virtual lessons on game design and accessibility to hundreds of middle school students throughout the Greater Atlanta and Dallas areas.

ABOUT UAP

We believe integrating the arts in every classroom disrupts the status quo in public schools, engages students and boosts academic outcomes. Because a quality education shouldn’t depend on a child’s zip code.

 

We design and implement innovative educational programs rooted in the arts. Think learning English through storytelling, fractions through music, coding through game design, or socialization skills through role play.
