Our Mission Statement
The Academy for Performing Arts is an innovative four year high school, immersing students in honors’ level academics while training in a pre-professional artistic setting within majors such as theatre, dance, or technical theatre. The Academy fosters the discipline, integrity and passion necessary for students to succeed at the post-secondary level and as members of the performing arts community. The culmination of the program allows the students to complete their senior year by taking college-level courses and receiving college credit at Kean University.
Cathryn, a junior at APA, is a co-author, along with her sister and father, of the children's book, Big Hug. Her book will be published and available for purchase on October 25, 2016.
