Our School

Our School

Thank you for taking an interest in The Renaissance School for the Arts. We provide a creative and challenging environment that recognizes the uniqueness of each student while promoting artistic and academic excellence. Our students use their imaginations to explore and develop a process of life-long learning and inquiry.


Renaissance is a half-day charter school housed at Appleton West High School during the afternoons and offers an integrated academics curriculum that provides students with their communicative arts and social studies requirements. Students take their math, science and foreign language courses at one of Appleton’s three public high schools.


Our schedule is divided into two blocks each afternoon, which allows students to take a combination of eight-week and 24-week classes in a manner that provides more course opportunities than traditional schedules.

Students oftentimes are taking seven or eight different courses each week at Renaissance. Our course offerings change each semester.

If you would like further information or would like to stop and visit, call our office at (920) 832-5708. We look forward to helping you better understand our program.

Academic Excellence

The Renaissance School for the Arts is designed to meet the needs of young people who are passionate about the arts. We are able to afford these young artists unique and creative opportunities because we operate on a college-like schedule in which academic classes are not conducted on a daily basis as they are in most high schools. Therefore in order to be successful, students need to possess or develop the maturity and organizational skills necessary to do well in this format.
