ACPS Summer Fine Arts Academy 2014 "Learning from the Heart"
Albemarle County Public Schools students currently in grades 6-11 are invited to register here for a new Summer Fine Arts Academy that will be held at Burley Middle School during the week of July 21-25. The Academy will offer sessions in art, creative writing, dance, drama, choir, and jazz band from 9 a.m. until noon each day. Art students will have an option of adding three hours to their sessions and ending their day at 3 p.m. Click here to see information about class offerings and registration fees.
The new academy will follow the model of the highly successful Summer Jazz Camp, which has been held at Burley the previous two years. Academy students will receive concentrated instruction in selected areas that will include outside artists and will have the ability to work with students in multi-age groups.
Art, creative writing, dance, choir, and drama students will showcase their work at special performances at the conclusion of the week, and Jazz Band members will perform at the nTelos Wireless Pavilion.
The registration fee is $100 per student or $150 for those art students who choose the extended session option. A limited amount of needs-based financial assistance is available. Each session will require a minimum of 12 students.
- After completing the online registration form, mail your check, made payable to the ACPS Fine Arts Academy, to the ACPS Office of Instruction (401 McIntire, Room 333, Charlottesville, VA 22902) within one week of completing the form in order to guarantee your child's space.
After July 1, registration will be extended on a space-available basis to all students in the Central Virginia area.
