Program Details
Theater Arts (M66B)
Performing Arts

The Theater Arts are used as a conduit for self-confidence and self-awareness so that graduates can be engaging in both theaters and board rooms. A 4-year curriculum is offered where students can take 1-2 periods of theater daily. Students acquire skills used in theatre and performance as well as other career paths. Learners focus on directing, playwriting, musical theater, and technical design. An senior-year Exit Project is completed for all students so they may earn an arts endorsed diploma.

Students are ranked by the school based on their auditions. Offers are made in priority group and rank order.
