Parker Performing Arts School

Parker Performing Arts School is a proposed tuition-free K-8 charter school seeking authorization from the Douglas County School District. The school will be unlike any other school in DCSD, providing a unique mix of academic rigor along with training in the performing arts. An exciting one-to-one iPad environment, differentiated digital curriculum and daily performing arts instruction at PPAS will inspire student passion and engagement, and help foster valuable 21st Century Skills such as creativity, critical thinking, communication, collaboration.

The school is currently planning to open the Fall of 2016 and will be located in the Parker area. At this time the PPAS Board of Directors is working with the Colorado League of Charter Schools to finalize the charter application, which will be submitted to Douglas County School District in March 2015. In addition, the founding team is establishing a waitlist of students, mobilizing volunteer committees, and reaching out to performing arts organizations in our community. 

To express your interest in enrolling at PPAS, please complete a non-binding Intent to Enroll Form.

If you would like to get involved with PPAS, please see our volunteer opportunities.
