OVERVIEW
IDENTITY

Middle school students are at a crucial time of social and emotional growth, questioning the world and their place in it. We believe that theatre is the ideal medium for navigating the complexities of transitioning into independent thinkers and learners.

MOTIVATION
At ATLAS, students direct their own learning by running all aspects of a theatre company. We use the theatrical process to explore essential questions in literature, science, history, math, and beyond.

COMMUNITY
Our small cohorts of 12-18 students ensure a safe, supportive learning environment with room to question, experiment, change, and grow. Our mission is to cultivate students who demonstrate the 5 C’s of ATLAS:

CURIOSITY about their world,
COMMITMENT to their work,
CREATIVITY in their thinking,
CONFIDENCE in themselves, and
COMPASSION toward all they encounter. ​
