Why Come Here?

A Place of Belonging, Inspiration, and Acceptance

Our students LOVE coming to school.  Students at MSA consider themselves part of a unique family of artists and scholars all accepting of each others’ unique talents, interests and perspectives.  This campus-wide sense of unity and support builds confidence and individuality in a safe and secure environment.  When students feel welcomed and supported by staff and fellow students- success will ultimately follow.

We're the school ALL parents wish they could have attended.

We hear everyday from our vibrant and active parent community that they’d wished for a school like MSA when they were young.  We understand COMPLETELY.  Give your child the gift of access to OUTSTANDING ACADEMICS and WORLD-CLASS ARTS TRAINING right here at Manatee School For the Arts.


“My son has never been more confident. He has grown so much academically and has discovered his LOVE for animation. Thank you MSA”

Both my children attend MSA- and I could not be happier that they are. It is an outstanding program for them. They have both become A and B students because of their excellent teachers. The best part is that they enjoy going to school.
