CACS supports social development, self and community awareness and dedication to social justice
Creative Arts is a California Distinguished School
CACS was selected for the Distinguished School Award by the California Department of Education to honor schools that are inspirational and exemplary, and who have made strides to close the achievement gap.
Creative Arts students explore and learn the core subjects of language arts, math, science, and social studies through direct experience and a hands-on curriculum with an arts-integrated focus.
87% of our graduates attend one of their top choice high schools including Balboa, City Arts and Technology, Drew, Gateway, June Jordan, Leadership, Lincoln, Lowell, and School of the Arts.
Please consider helping us offset the cost of the venue at a sliding scale of between $5-20 for each ticket. Contributions received at the school's office beforehand or on the night of the show during checkin. RSVP on Eventbrite! More information can be found...read more
