OUR FOCUS AREAS
Academic programs are built on a proficiency based system, which empowers students through clear learning targets to achieve goals. All academic areas are differentiated to allow learning progress and integrated with the arts. The student-centered culture encourages risk-taking and a growth mindset, which can transform learning environments to assure that all students grow.
Whether a beginner, intermediate, or advanced dancer, students will be able to experience a variety of genres, fitness classes, and may participate in creating choreography. Students will perform in recitals and an annual show.
The Music Program offers sequential music instruction, aligned with the Maine standards in Visual and Performing Arts, in all instruments and voice. In addition to studying guitar, strings, piano, voice, and all types of instruments, students can also take part in ensembles including choir, select choir, band, percussion ensemble, musical theater and string orchestra. Students must meet the NYSSMA standards at level 3 for a diploma with a pathway in music, level 4 for a diploma with distinction.
The Musical Theatre Program focuses the techniques necessary for a heightened and honest production in a high paced, professional atmosphere. Musical theatre classes allow students to enter into a world of tools and techniques for all aspects of musical theatre including singing, acting, dancing and vocal production.
The Theater Program allows students to explore the collaborative process of making theater. Classes focus on acting and performance, theater games and improvisation, theater leadership, directing, playwriting, and creating original theater.
