MUSE Academy

MUSE Academy is an independent private school and preschool in Brooklyn. MUSE makes music and performing arts the foundation of kids' education to enhance cognitive development, confidence, and creativity. Its unique pre-K and kindergarten programs nurture a passion for learning from an early age. MUSE Academy's faculty comes from many of the leading universities and conservatories in the world. Using an inquiry-based learning model, its approach engages all the modes through which children learn and communicate—including verbal, analytical, kinesthetic, spatial, social, and emotional. The rigorous academic curriculum includes literature, the humanities, math, science, Spanish, and the visual arts.

Here is what parents have to say about their child’s experience at MUSE Academy:

“We have been blown away by what a great experience this year has been for [our daughter]. The teachers are incredibly creative, fun, and loving. The music and arts curriculum is phenomenal; my daughter has taught me about the ‘string family’ and Keith Haring. And she is also getting a solid academic foundation, learning her letters and foundational pre-literacy skills, math and science, and great social-emotional development.”

“We have our two daughters attending MUSE Academy, in first grade and pre-K 4, and couldn’t be happier. We came from a well-regarded public school and private pre-school, and yet we were immediately blown away by the differences at Muse.”
