Mural Project SCPA is a recipient of an After School Safety Enrichment for Teens (21st ASSETs) Grant, which is state administered and federally funded, allowing for after school tutoring, rehearsals,performances and weekend activities for high school students. This work supports our SPSA goals for student achievement in the areas of: English Language Arts, math, graduation/promotion rate, and artistic achievement. Additionally, in the summer of 2009, SCPA added a two-week Summer Arts Intensive in August 2009 where students immersed themselves in their art major to expand their artistic pursuits over the period off our hours a day, five days a week. SCPA's 2009 Summer Intensive was modeled after The Juilliard School's Intensive Program and geared to artistic achievement within the community. It is designed to enrich and advance high school students in their chosen discipline. Approximately130 students participated in SCPA's Summer Intensive Program.

SCPA continues to develop numerous parent and community partnerships. Our partners provide substantive and meaningful contributions that supplement our curriculum and provide significant opportunities toward student's artistic and academic development, while at the same time enriching the arts within the community. Currently, our seventeen partners provide invaluable insight into the professional world of the creative and performing arts, as well as offered exposure to professional artists at the top of their crafts which provide necessary vision for our students to see what it takes to succeed in these disciplines. Professional development opportunities, workshops for students with guest artists and choreographers, field trips, site visits, and performances are part of the total experience.
