We believe that an arts-integrated curriculum serves every student.

The A.R.T. Education Experience engages students by connecting our productions with classroom curriculum and students’ lives. In addition to inspiring creativity, collaboration, and intellectual curiosity in our community, we’re all about supporting teachers with free arts-integrated teaching tools, classroom visits, and discounted tickets to world-class theater at the A.R.T. A listing of our major educational offerings follows, but feel free to contact us for consultation on how to link your visit to the A.R.T. with your curriculum.

Teacher Tuesdays

A.R.T. Teacher Tuesdays are fun-filled theater experiences just for educators! Join us for an evening of engaging professional development and theater-going, jam-packed with fun, refreshments, and raffle prizes.

The evenings will be led by A.R.T.’s Education and Engagement Director and our Learning Lead team, include a ticket to the show that night, and may include special guest appearances from the production’s creative team and Harvard faculty. Plus, if you attend three or more Teacher Tuesdays during the year, you will be offered a certificate of achievement from American Repertory Theater at Harvard University and an invitation to a special reception in Summer 2022.

If cost is a concern, please contact and we’d be happy to help.
