Jubilee Performing Arts Center

"The purpose of JPAC is to revive the awareness and appreciation of the arts while developing competent students who are successfully prepared for the next level in the arts whether that be university, apprenticeship, or professional experience. While steeped in the arts, Jubilee also has a rigorous and relevant academic component which challenges students in Math, Science, English/Language Arts, and Social Studies. JPAC believes that all students, given the proper environment, can learn and achieve."

The Stories

Jubilee Performing Arts Center is a private K-12 school that requires all students to declare an arts major - music, dance, visual art, or literary art. Students take academic classes in the morning and then their chosen art classes in the afternoon.
