About Us

The arts are imperative to learning and development.

The Performing Arts Academy at East Lake opened beginning in the fall of the 2013-2014 school year. The goal of the Academy is to provided a top-notch education in concentrated art fields and core academics to 9th-12th-grade students. While all of the arts are valuable, the study of theater specifically fuels so much more than creativity and passion: our curriculum and leadership breeds critical thinkers, innovators, and problem-solvers. Our students unlock their potential and acutely develop communication and collaboration skills. 

Our theater can hold almost 780 people. Catwalks come down from the ceiling so students can walk above the stage and control the lighting. We put on two main stage productions each year: a fall play, and a spring musical. In addition, we produce several other events throughout the year, including student lead one acts, lip sync show, and improv show. 


As a school with thriving art departments, our school uses boosters clubs in the same way traditional schools would use the PTA. We create a smaller, close-knit environment where faculty and parents meet to support each other. It takes a village to pull off our wonderful productions and we are grateful for the efforts of many volunteers and parents. Click here to read our By-Laws.
