CPFA is a cyber-blended pre-professional arts program for students in grades 6-12 enrolled here at PALCS. CPFA opened in the fall of 2005 and today has an enrollment of more than 200 middle and high school students. Students study four main disciplines: theatre, music, dance and fine arts. CPFA is currently accepting applications for the 2018-2019 school year.

What a wonderful display of the students and their extraordinary talents! Their hard work and dedication is clearly displayed throughout the exhibition and we are so honored to have them represent our school. Congratulations to each student whose work is on display throughout the exhibition as well as their wonderful CPFA instructors!
