Creative and Performing Arts

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.

May 2015: Mrs. Eaton


The CAPA SLC is proud to present our teacher of the month for the month of May to be Mrs. Eaton! Here at Chavez, Mrs. Eaton is not only the dance teacher, but also the adviser of color guard and dance club. Since she teachers performing arts, it would be fitting to assign her into CAPA. Mrs. Eaton came to Chavez because of the available position of a dance teacher and the elimination of middle schools. One of Mrs. Eaton's personal achievements is the growth of the dance program and color guard, and she wishes to continue their growth, not only with size, but also with skill. She is proud to be a Titan because of what we have become as a whole, and we are overjoyed to have a teacher such as Mrs. Eaton as our teacher of the month!
