Additionally, your children will be able to participate in a wide and diverse range of exemplary extracurricular programs.

image011 Arts 14 brings together local arts organizations under one umbrella in order to provide quality experiences in the arts beyond school hours. MSSD14 has hired Wendy Fay, an experienced teacher and administrator, to coordinate arts programming at its four schools.

This unique partnership makes use of the District facilities, a dynamic arts community, and dedicated instructors to build programming that enhances the growth of our students and their families. Arts14 reflects the District’s dedication to educating the whole child. We want to encourage MSSD14 students to become complete people, broadly educated as scholars, athletes, and artists.

Affordable classes in theatre, instrumental and vocal music, visual arts, design, and dance/movement are provided by the FAIM program, Concrete Couch, the Manitou Springs Arts Academy, and the Pikes Peak Dance Studio. Three nine-week sessions will be offered this school year.  The second session begins the week of December 8th.  Arts14 is available to students and adults who want to be challenged and to grow. Join us!

Session 2 begins December 8th
