what is capa?


The Creative and Performing Arts Small Learning Community provides students a rigorous curriculum centered around the arts.  Students will be expected to participate in classes specific to stagecraft, visual art, media entertainment, vocal and instrumental music, dance, acting, script writing and directing/producing each academic year. In addition to coursework, students will be able to apply learned skills to job shadowing and internships specifically tailored to their interests. All students in the Creative and Performing Arts SLC are invited to explore their artistic abilities in various genres with the expectation to showcase their talents through productions, concerts, and exhibitions.

Career paths in CAPA can include but are not limited to: actor, artist, choreographer, composer/arranger, conductor, crew jobs, dancer, fashion, designer, journalist, lighting designer, makeup artist, manager, music therapist, musician, painter, playwright, producer, publisher, radio/television broadcaster, sound engineer, stage hand, stagecraft/set designer, talent agent, teacher and technician.



We strive to guide students through understanding their academic responsibilities, developing their confidence through the artistic process, creating a body of works that connects their social well being to their future.

April 2015: Mr. Perovich


For the month of April, the CAPA SLC is proud to present our teacher of the month award to the one and only Mr. Perovich! Mr. Perovich works in CAPA because CAPA was selected for him. He came to Cesar Chavez High School because he wanted to work in a new school to try and create something different and new that other schools didn't have before. Mr. Perovich's most proud achievements include the relationships he has built with his students, from alumnis to freshmen today. His achievements come from his students' success. Along with being the business teacher, Mr. Perovich is also the boys and girls golf coach and the connection to skiing trips. His goals for this year involve finishing strong and giving students a great experience of these last weeks. Mr. Perovich is proud to be a Titan because of the kids who go to Chavez and represent us. And we are proud to be a Titan because of teachers such as Mr. Perovich!


April 2015: Katrina Huynh


We are proud as an SLC to be able to present Katrina Huynh as our April student of the month! Katrina chose CAPA as her SLC because it interested her and was something new. She is involved in art club, dance, and was a volleyball player and a choir singer during Chami. Katrina is proud of her grades and Renaissance awards she received from this school year. Katrina's goals for this school year is to find and settle on something she wants to do in the future and build on it for the rest of her high school years. Katrina is proud to be a Titan because of CAPA and because of the community the Titans present. Keep up the great work, Katrina!
