Performing Arts Education
  • Starting in grade 9, students will be exposed to and perform in three aspects of the performing arts - Dance, Theatre, and Vocal
  • After a brief rotation through the majors, students will declare an area of concentration in one of the three performing arts offered.
  • Students continue their studies throughout their four years at UASPA, culminating in the Arts Exit Exams taken during senior year as a prerequisite to earning the Arts Endorsement on their diplomas.
