Welcome to Acero Cruz!
We are a K-12 performing arts school located within a beautiful Rogers Park facility that supports our arts program within the studios indoors and our extracurriculars and athletics on the fields outdoors.
We are proud to offer varsity athletics as part of the Lake Shore Athletic League, after school clubs through community partnerships, and in-house dance, theater, band, and visual arts classes to all high school students every day for four years.
Our academics are focused on supporting students' growth on a continuum from Kindergarten to Senior Graduation, with extra counseling support in high school to ensure all students, regardless of background, can attend college. We have a tablet or laptop for every student and are providing more personalized learning through a partnership with Summit Learning.
Our close-knit community allows students to build strong, caring relationships with their peers and staff members, and our teachers serve as advisors and mentors, whether formal or informal, to students and families of all grade levels.
If a close, welcoming, and supportive community is what you're looking for, Acero Cruz is the school for you. We encourage you to visit campus or attend a Showcase performance featuring our skilled high school arts students, often with guest performances from the younger grade levels. Please stop by campus to meet me and the team today!
