The Arts at CCA

At CCA, every student can thrive in The Arts, not just those uniquely talented.

Students across all grade levels, from elementary school through high school, have the opportunity inside and outside of the classroom to participate in our robust performing and visual arts programs. We are pleased to have the very best faculty who not only teach their area of expertise but perform and create in our communities across Cape Cod.

Expert faculty guide students in not just mastering techniques but also in understanding the cultural and historical contexts of the arts. Whether your child is an aspiring musician, actor, or visual artist, they will find a nurturing environment designed to build confidence and creativity.

From the moment your child joins us, they will have ample opportunities to explore and showcase their talent. Our well-equipped black box theater, choral groups, band and strings programs, and a wide variety of art classes ensure creative development. We offer advanced courses in photography, portfolio art, ceramics, and more. 

Performing Arts at Cape Cod Academy emphasizes the development of performance skills, confidence and self-awareness in a safe, encouraging and positive learning environment.

Visual Arts classes are an integral part of the student’s daily life at Cape Cod Academy. The tenets of the program emphasize development of awareness, sensitivity to, and understanding of the visual environment. Cultivation of vocabulary within the vernacular, connection to the art history continuum and development of manual skills are combined to support a self-expressive independent and visually acute person. Students with diverse and individual learning styles gain confidence and self-reliance through direct contact with materials and processes that challenge and deepen their sense of self.
We were surprised when our son told us he wanted to learn an instrument. Now he not only performs with the CCA Jazz Ensemble, he actively takes lessons each week and has developed a self-confidence we haven't seen before."
