Center for the Fine and Performing Arts  

CFPA LogoThe Center for the Fine and Performing Arts at  Charles J. Colgan  Sr. High School offers students the opportunity to develop creativity, self-expression, academic achievement, and critical thinking as young arts.  Students are supported in their efforts to master a common core of learning that promotes a broader understanding of the arts.

Students are trained in the skills necessary to be successful in a university arts program and to become a valued participant in the larger arts community.

Students can study in one of several concentration areas including dance, instrumental music, vocal music, music technology, theater, creative writing, and visual arts.

To participate in the program, students must complete an audition and/or present a portfolio. Students accepted into the program must be enrolled in at least one class in the Fine and Performing Arts and must complete a sequence of classes from grades nine through twelve.
