Mission & Vision

Our mission at the School for Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA) is teaching academics to meet or exceed promotion standards with an emphasis on enriching through teaching the arts.

In order to reach our high academic goals, we integrate the arts and academics to provide an education that stimulates our students. We offer all students opportunities to experience a rich arts environment with classes in dance, visual art, vocal music and Suzuki strings. Numerous arts classes are available for students to participate in both before and after school, including lessons in piano, visual art, keyboard, drama, choir and dance. In addition, students attend plays and symphonies, visit museums and experience visits from the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Cincinnati Opera, Cincinnati Ballet, theatre groups and nationally renowned storytellers and artists. Through the arts, our students learn how to be disciplined, work cooperatively, stay focused and believe in their talents.
