Welcome to the
Exploring The Arts
Partner School Network

The Exploring the Arts (ETA) Partner School Network is a growing community of schools who have engaged in ETA's unique Four-Year Plan model to build and support high quality arts programming in their schools. Through the Network, ETA creates opportunities that encourage dialogue, peer mentoring, inter-visitations and arts-related idea/resource sharing among all ETA Partner Schools. 

The Network is divided into three main areas of engagement:

In-Person Networking

ETA hosts regular opportunities for Partner School leadership and teachers to participate in professional learning sessions, peer work sessions and networking events

ETA Programming

Arts Access Grants-teachers may apply for grants to address arts-related needs in their classrooms
Apprenticeship Program- eligible students may apply for School Year and Summer Apprenticeship placements at arts organizations.

Online Platform

This website acts as an at-the-ready reference space for profiles of Partner Schools' Four-Year Plan goals and strategies and an up to date resources listing highlighting school-wide grant opportunities, student and teacher opportunities,  tip sheets and best practices articles and resources. Stay up to date with all updates and posts by bookmarking this page and checking back regularly. You can also subscribe to the Resources listing in the sidebar of the Resources page to receive an email automatically when a new post is added. It also houses a growing database of project ideas in the arts for teachers including arts integration projects, successful Arts Access Grants and more. School administration and teachers alike can use this website as a portal to learn about and connect with colleagues at other ETA Partner Schools who are also seeking to build and maintain high-quality arts programming for their students.
