VISION

All students will complete a pre-collegiate curriculum in the arts and academics. All students will demonstrate they are (1) prepared for conservatory study in the arts and (2) a sophisticated, literate critical thinker ready to engage in the 21st century creative economy.

MISSION

Through a safe and supportive learning environment, we will fulfil our promise to students by:

  • Offering a rigorous pre-collegiate scope and sequence of courses in the academics and arts
  • Ensuring all students have access to diverse industry professionals in the arts and academics
  • Providing a passionate, student-centered staff dedicated to ensuring all students experience success
  • Providing ample opportunities for innovation, creativity, and critical thinking

STUDENT LEARNING OBJECTIVES (SLOs)

Each SLO clarifies for the entire school community what students will know, understand and be able to do when they graduate from high school (i.e., a citizen who learns, thinks and communicates with confidence). The SLOs guide policies, procedures, and standards-based curricula that align with these SLOs:

SCHOLAR: An SCPA scholar is a critical and creative thinker with a deep-rooted passion for learning and discovery. Our scholars strive to be critical thinkers with the tools for sophisticated literacy in their art and academic curriculum

CITIZEN: An SCPA citizen is actively involved in developing an environment that is welcoming, engaging, and inclusive of a highly diverse community. Our citizens engage in meaningful action toward equity and equality for all people and are upstanders against bullying, harassment, and negative, harmful behaviors.

PROFESSIONAL: An SCPA professional strives toward excellence in preparation for success in college, career, and life. Our professionals show up for responsibility with a preparedness and active stance toward lifelong learning and success. Our professionals do not give up.

ARTIST: An SCPA artist is a courageous and self-disciplined individual with a continuous desire to create authentic works of art. Our artists’ voices are nurtured through intensive arts training as a foundation for individual success as they live their passion.
