Thank you very much.
Pittsburgh CAPA 6-12 commits to making connections. Our academic program fuses civics with botany, mathematics with visual art and foreign language with filmmaking. Technology is a critical part of the curriculum: websites, videos, Pod Casts and computer-based projects supplement our learning.
Artistically, students are dedicated to collaboration. Whether it's the annual Literary Arts/Theater Department Ten-Minute Play Festival or the Vocal Department's joint productions with Pittsburgh Opera Theater, ideas are constantly being shared, questioned, and embraced. Our Downtown location allows for extraordinarily enriching excursions. Environmental Science students may collect water samples from the Monongahela River while a Physical Education class plays softball in Point State Park. CAPA's urban campus gives us increased awareness of need in the city.
Students regularly organize charity benefits, and our Amnesty International chapter holds demonstrations in the cafeteria. High school poets read at a local community center for the elderly, and the Musical Theater Department performs often at the Children's Hospital. From the beginning of our time at CAPA, we know that everything we learn is meant to help us create change.
Each student's unique artistic perspective broadens each individual's horizons. Pittsburgh CAPA 6-12 students represent all of Pittsburgh's neighborhoods, pulling inspiration from every corner of the city. The broad range of cultural, socioeconomic, and religious backgrounds influence a broad outlook; everything from sexual orientation to politics encourages discussion and stimulates growth. Each student goes into the future with full respect for diversity: of thought, of art, and of people
