Performing Arts Academy Mission: 

Creating community, building character, and inspiring excellence through performing arts education.

Performing Arts Academy Vision:

To bring the transformative power of the performing arts to all.

With this strong momentum and overwhelmingly positive feedback from students, families, and school administrators, PAA continues to address the unmet need for quality arts and education experiences by continuing to collaborate with Littleton Schools. PAA’s continued goal is to provide the best experience possible and ensure we utilize all the resources necessary to best serve our community

The arts are an essential element of education, just like reading, writing, and arithmetic…music, dance, painting, and theater are all keys that unlock profound human understanding and accomplishment.

–William Bennett, Former US Secretary of Education

Character

Through Integrity and Leadership

  1. Building confidence and nurturing self-esteem through transformative experiences for our students.
  2. Inspiring an understanding of diversity that includes people of all abilities, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, and faiths.
  3. Cultivating leadership in our students by modeling a spirit of kindness, generosity, collaboration and teamwork.
Curriculum

Through a balanced approach

  1. Creating an exceptional performing arts experience by setting a bar of personal excellence for both our students and staff.
  2. Providing experienced and professional faculty who foster respect and acceptance while challenging individual growth.
  3. Utilizing Colorado state curriculum standards to guide education and performance for each age group.
Community

Through engagement:

  1. Cultivating a community within a community by embracing diversity through shared experiences in the arts.
  2. Giving back to the greater community through fundraising performances for scholarships and local causes.
  3. Partnering with local businesses and other organizations through sponsorships and collaborations to create a “small village” for the performing arts that serves the surrounding public as well as our students, staff and families.
A broad education in the arts helps give children a better understanding of their world…We need students who are culturally literate as well as math and science literate.”

-Paul Ostergard, Vice President, Citicorp

PAA is Hannah’s favorite part of summer.Her participation over the past three years has really helped to improve her self confidence and motivate her in school.  She looks forward to doing other productions, in addition to PAA, and she enjoys working with all the participants and directors. She was transformed by the experience and her confidence has blossomed.
