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.






October 2014: Mr. Turner


For the month of October, we are honored to award Mr. Turner for his dedication to the arts as our teacher of the month. Despite the fact that Turner has only been an educator for two years, he is  and is currently teaching beginning guitar and marching band. As Turner loves music, he honestly feels like being a music teacher is enjoyable and more fun as opposed to work. Considering his passion for his career, it only made sense for him to be a part of the Creative and Performing Arts Small Learning Community. Through his hard work and dedication, Mr. Turner plans to improve CAPA and ultimately our school as a whole. We are proud to have him as our teacher of the month for the month of October!


October 2014: Patrick Escalona


Our Student of the Month for the month of October is Patrick Escalona! He is a dedicated, motivated, and very active student in the Creative and Performing Arts SLC! Since he is involved as a dancer in Filipino Club, color guard, and a violinist in orchestra, it's quite obvious why we are acknowledging his consistency as a student for not only excelling academically, but also artistically. The reason he chose CAPA as her SLC was because he loves to perform and would like to find a career in the business field. Patrick has already performed his dances from color guard during our home football games, morning rally, and their competition in Santa Cruz. He has also competed with Filipino Club in Kilusan, where they won 4th place.
