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.

March 2015: Randy Ran


As an SLC, we are proud to present our CAPA Teacher of the Month to Randy Ran! Randy chose to be in the CAPA SLC because he knew that he wanted to study and teach music as he grew up. He is a Chavez alumni who helps make our performing arts program the best in our district, and he teaches here because of his bond with our students. Randy offers his time here by teaching Chavez's Jazz Choir and Advanced String Ensemble. He plans to build a relationship with the students and set the foundation to make our Jazz Choir one of the top in the state. Randy is prtoud to be a Titan simply because he comes from here. Here at Chavez, we greatly appreciate Randy Ran for teaching our students to be able to perform at their best!


March 2015: Anissa Lewis


We are proud as an SLC to be able to present Anissa Lewis as CAPA student of the month for March! Anissa chose the performing pathway because to her, music is life. As well as succeeding in her academics, which was one of her personal achievements, she is also involved with our school's mariachi and beginning choir. Anissa's goal for the remainder of the school year is to pass all of her classes. Anissa is proud to represent Chavez as a Titan because of our musical department and our CAPA SLC, and we are proud to have her as our student of the month!
