Fine Arts Academy


Uvalde CISD School Board and Superintendent have made an extraordinary commitment to enhancing student Fine Arts education by funding the Summer Fine Arts Academy. There are offerings open to UCISD student grades 3-12. We are dedicating our time, money and effort to facilitating the growth of the student artist through education and apprenticeship in their craft. By establishing a safe environment in which young actors, musicians, dancers, singers and visual artists can explore their creativity and hone their craft we expect to see Uvalde students rise to even greater heights not only in their art but in their overall education. Research has shown that a student’s involvement in the fine arts correlates with improvement in attendance, classroom achievement, behavior and state testing results. This Summer Fine Arts Academy is offered free of charge. Free transportation will coincide with summer school days between 8am and 3:30pm. A free breakfast and lunch is also provided to all academy students. Unfortunately a student that does not pass to the next grade level or does not pass their required state tests will not be able to participate in the Fine Arts Academy. They will be required to take other summer school classes. We hope that all parents, teachers and students will make every effort to make sure students pass all their classes and state tests so they can participate in the Fine Arts Academy. Acceptance will be on a first come first serve basis. Turn your forms in early!

There will be auditions held at the Uvalde High School Auditorium and Black Box from 6-9pm on Friday, May 26, 2017 to determine which role is best for each student. At that time parents will be given more information and have time to ask questions.

All Academy Students:
Attendance at all rehearsals and performances is required. All Academy students must follow all UCISD rules and behave appropriately for the learning and performance environment and follow the instructions of the teacher or be removed and not allowed to return. This is up to the discretion of the Academy administrator.
