The Arts - music, dance, theatre and the visual arts- are intellectual disciples of substance. Arts skills and processes, knowledge and history, can be taught and learned by all students, not just the talented. They also enhance learning for everyone across the academic spectrum and therefore are of great value for today’s students. Students who participate in arts programs are more likely to succeed and become leaders in whatever field of endeavor they choose.
At the Cultural Academy for Excellence (CAFE), students meet each Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. from September through June. The time is divided between academic, music instruction and band rehearsal. Additional orchestra rehearsal practices are scheduled every Tuesday and Friday evening.
The objectives of the program are as follows:
- To ensure that CAFE students are able to pursue academic excellence by mastering the fundamentals concepts in math and science;
- To develop reading, writing and comprehension skills; and
- To use the performing arts to help develop fundamental skills of thinking creatively, discipline, problem solving, self-esteem and sociability.
