More about the PAC K-12 Arts Education Outreach Program
Launched in 2008, the PAC K-12 Arts Education Outreach Program continues to provide incredible opportunities for the youth of the Santa Clarita Valley through valuable partnerships with major arts organizations in California and across the nation.
The program uses the college’s cultural and community resources to introduce Santa Clarita’s student population to top-tier, visual and performing arts standard-based arts activities and integrated performing arts learning opportunities.
Through school assemblies, bus-in programs, classroom visits and family performances, students can enjoy performances that meet or exceed the state of California’s Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) standards.
The Outreach Program has at its core a collaborative approach, partnering with teachers and administrators in school districts and community-based organizations throughout the area to develop an enhanced arts education curriculum and a variety of unique educational opportunities for all students.
