Mission & History

“The mission of the theater, after all, is to change, to raise the consciousness of people to their human possibilities.”

– Arthur Miller

Our Mission

The Arthur Miller Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides access and equity to quality theater education in public schools, and aims to increase the number of students that receive a dedicated theater education as an integral part of their academic curriculum. We believe that arts education is a right of every public school student. As an organization, we affirm that if arts education assumes its rightful place in the public school curriculum, we will foster generations of imaginative graduates, enhancing the evolving world of theater and all other fields of human endeavor.

We accomplish this mission by providing resources and support to new certified theater teachers in public schools.

We also put more theater teachers in public schools by offering eligible candidates the opportunity to earn scholarships toward their theater teaching certification.
