The PAC K-12 Arts Education Outreach Program uses the college’s cultural and community resources to provide SCV students an opportunity to benefit from top-tier visual and performing arts (VAPA) curriculum and learning opportunities.

Since its inception the K-12 Arts Outreach Program has taken a collaborative approach, with PAC organizers partnering with teachers and administrators in school districts throughout the SCV in order to reach as many students as possible. As a result, the program continues to provide arts-infused curriculum and unique educational opportunities for students throughout the SCV.
