performing arts center

Gateway Academy's Performing Arts Center (PAC) offers the highest caliber of artistic education so that our students may achieve their fullest potential as academics, artists and leaders. GA PAC has a vision to give every student an opportunity to develop their talents with quality faculty in a fun and safe environment. 


Elementary students will have art and music appreciation classes. Middle School and High School students can choose from electives such as drama, baking, photography, musical theater, art and more. 


After school private and group lessons may be available for students in any given school year in areas such as guitar, piano, voice, violin, dance, drama and photography. Offerings may change from school year to school year. 


Additionally, a needs-based tuition support program is available. 

Christmas and Spring Performances take place every school year.
