ICON is surrounded by charm!

Located in a historic, tight-knit neighborhood and community - student learning is housed in an expansive 18K square feet of a newly renovated building, Brewery Square.

Our space includes professionally designed dance, music, theatre, and visual arts studios, along with practice rooms, a costume lab, student commons, and academic classrooms.  

Just down the street is our very own James Theater, a performance space that readily transforms from black box to recital stage to theatre lab.
