The mission of the Performing Arts Academy at Hopewell Valley Central High School is to provide a 4-year career-focused arts experience for emerging artists who possess exceptional talent and drive in the Performing Arts with the ultimate goal of preparing students for careers and/or admission to competitive colleges/universities in the performing arts. Our Academy is a place where serious students have access to a skilled faculty, like-minded peers, and a creative space to develop their artistry. By encouraging creative risk-taking through the development and performance of original works in a collaborative, interdisciplinary environment our Performing Arts Academy prepares students with the skills to be active global citizens in an ever-changing world.

- Theatre Arts
