The Arts Consortium is a Franklin High School Academy for students with an interest and passion for the Visual and Performing Arts! 
The mission of the Arts Consortium is to empower students to meet the standards of excellence which foster creative exploration of the visual and performing arts within the school and the community:
*to prepare them to be creative, critical-thinking, productive citizens who articulate ideas in various forms of communication
*to cultivate an appreciation of the role the arts play in a culturally diverse society
Our belief is that the Arts Consortium student shall have the maximum opportunity to accelerate academically and artistically while exploring career and curriculum options, including a community-service component. The Arts Consortium is designed for students, who want the opportunity to explore in depth their interest in visual arts, dance, music, theatre, or an integration of the visual and performing arts. Ultimately, the arts will be infused into the total academic curricular experience.
*Objective 1: Offer coursework in a variety of visual and performing art disciplines and also provide the option of a concentrated focus in a single area of interest
*Objective 2: Offer guest lecturers who expose students to professionals in the arts, media, and entertainment industries
*Objective 3: Offer opportunities to experience professional performances and exhibitions throughout the region
*Objective 4: Offer community service opportunities that enable students to interact with the arts community
