The Mission has evolved slightly since PAPA’s inception. The academic and performing arts programs have evolved to meet the needs of a diverse student population. The heart of PAPA has remained the same as stated in the current Vision and Mission:
The Public Academy for Performing Arts will be a small, supportive educational community where students achieve high academic standards and pursue excellence in the performing arts.
The Public Academy for Performing Arts is a public charter school that integrates a rigorous college preparatory curriculum with the performing arts and prepares students to pursue their passions and talents.
