At Allentown Central Catholic, musicians, vocalists, actors, graphic designers, sculptors, painters, and artists are given the opportunity showcase their talents. These students learn about history, foundational principles, and are assessed mainly by studio-based or performance-based projects.
From art to theatrical productions to concerts, ACCHS's love for creativity shines. Our comprehensive fine arts curriculum helps to provide each student with a full range of study that keeps our students involved and engaged. Students of every skill level are invited and encouraged to broaden their knowledge in one of the arts disciplines, and thereby fulfill their one fine arts credit requirement for graduation.
Students are able to concentrate in one specific area of the arts, thus preparing them more completely for further collegiate studies. The students will complete graduated levels of instruction in their particular discipline, build college prep portfolios, participate in regional competitions, and will have musical performance and art exhibition opportunities.
