Welcome to the Ambridge Area High School Cyber and Performing Arts Academy.
The Performing Arts Academy understands that every student in the arts starts first with a dream, then the challenge of striving to achieve success.
The Performing Arts Academy has many exceptional qualities, to be able to meet all the needs of our young aspiring future artistes. A customized comprehensive training program and various curriculum tracks offer students in Music, Dance, Theatre, Musical Theatre, and Acting in front of the camera that will cultivate and maximize their individual talents while providing the premier quality education.
The other unique opportunity that is offered is specifically designed for high school juniors and seniors called R.E.A.D.Y (Resource Education Associate Arts Degree for Youths). The two year 60 credits program is with the collaborative agreement between the Ambridge Area School District and the Community College of Beaver County (C.C.B.C.). Students will receive their high school diploma and an Associate Arts Degree upon graduation from high school allowing them to pursue their Bachelors degree at a 4 year institute in a possible two year period.
The Cyber Academy that is offered at the Ambridge Area High School and surrounding school districts is a great venue for all students in the performing arts. Students will have more flexibility in their schedules to devote more time in their arts disciplines of classes and performances.
Let's strive and work together through all challenges to achieve your dreams of success!
