Center for Arts Education

For nearly two decades, The Center for Arts Education (CAE) has led the effort to ensure every child in every New York City public school has access to a well-rounded education that includes the arts. We believe every child in every school has the right to a well-rounded education of which the arts are an essential ingredient. Beyond having great value in and of themselves, the arts promote the health and well-being of children, including academic and personal growth, critical thinking and analytical skills, and the motivation to stay in school and excel. CAE’s dedicated staff works with parents, educators, cultural organizations, and policymakers to advance arts education in New York City public schools.
