The Fitzgerald Performing Arts Center



We aim to develop the students academically, artistically and socially.  It is our hope that they will leave the school as independent, cooperative, responsible and creative
young adults.  Students will develop a lifelong interest in the arts. We believe that these skills and qualities will prepare our students to pursue further educational goals and allow them to contribute to the life and well-being of society as a whole. Our program graduates students who use the skills learned in theatre to pursue further studies in higher institutions of learning.
