• The School for Creative and Performing Arts High School (7-12) Academic Programs

    The School for Creative and Performing Arts provides a strong academic and college-preparatory curriculum for all students. All academic programs are rooted in the Ohio Common Core State Standards.

    The High School Course Guide (Spanish) includes more detail about the opportunities and resources available to our high school students. Students and their families are encouraged to use the High School Course Guide to plan their educational pathway. The guide includes course descriptions, information about early college credit and alternative credit programs, and more. Graduation requirements, grade reporting, report cards and other policies and procedures are also included in the guide.

    The School for Creative and Performing Arts’ Academic Section is guided by the following eight principles:

    • Higher Expectations: In order for students to meet tougher learning standards and compete for increasingly demanding jobs, they must be exposed to more rigorous content and performance expectations.
    • Engagement: The future is layered, networked and vibrant, so our students must be engaged socially, emotionally and intellectually—and at a deep level—to fully develop their talents.
    • Collaboration: The workplace is becoming increasingly collaborative and it will be even more so in the future, so our students must be comfortable working in teams, sharing responsibility and making joint decisions.
    • Real World Connections: The future holds many challenges, so our students must be exposed to real world issues and their possible solutions, while being inspired by—and even consulting with—experts from around the world.
    • Technology: The future promises to be only more digital and data-driven, so our students must be able to use information and communications technology to expand their knowledge and deepen their skills.
    • Social Skills: In both the physical and digital realms, the future will be even more heavily networked and crowd-sourced, so our students must be able to expand their self-awareness, learn social skills and understand the hallmarks of wise choices.
    • Critical Thinking: The future offers an abundance of information and opinion, so our students must be able to analyze, synthesize and evaluate.
    • Creativity: The future is awash in opportunity and challenges, so our students must be able to generate new and novel ideas, conceive of alternatives and view things from different perspectives.
