PAA has partnered with Alta Independent, who has verified that our curriculum meets their credit requirements. To receive High School credit you will need to enroll in and complete a semester-long PAA class or show.
Students can earn 0.5 credits for each PAA semester-long class or show (minimum 60 hours of instruction) which can be applied toward P.E., Fine Arts, or Electives requirements for your High School Diploma.

HOW IT WORKS
Register and complete a semester-long PAA class or show
Any of the classes or shows offered in our Spring or Fall semesters will qualify for school credit. PAA Summer camps will not qualify since they do not meet the required number of instructional hours.
