Keep Calm, Stay Home and Practice

The health and safety of Richland Academy of the Arts students, families, staff and faculty is our highest priority. We are closely monitoring updates from the CDC. We are also heeding the advice of local and state health and governmental officials as this situation evolves.

Based on their recommendations and expertise the Richland Academy of the Arts will suspend all classes and lessons from March 14, 2020, through April 5, 2020. During this time the building will be closed.

As of now we plan to resume on Monday, April 6, 2020. We will remain flexible as relevant information continues to be shared and will be used to inform decision making.

Once classes resume the scheduled weeks of classes will include the weeks of:

April 11, 2020-April 18, 2020 (Our previously scheduled Spring Break)

May 11, 2020

May 18, 2020

The following performances and special events have been suspended until further notice:

March 29, 2020: Music Recital

April 1, 2020: Summer Registration

April 4, 2020: Academy Salutes, Annual Cabaret Show & Auction Fundraiser

April 18, 2020: Little Black Box Theatre Performance

An announcement regarding ticket sales for the dance recitals will be made available as the situation evolves.

We will provide information on individual class schedules and other updates as we know more. If you need to speak with someone please contact us by calling 419-522-8224 or by email at
