    Picasso Quote

    Sierra Preparatory Academy is dedicated to creating an environment in which the visual and performing arts thrive in all academic areas, not just in electives. We believe that when the arts are integrated in all classes, the imagination and creativity of children is released, and innovation is the norm.  As students make connections between the classroom and their own lives, they craft a vision of who they are and what they hope to become.

    In addition, because  “creative industries are key to the economy of California and a source of future employment for up to one in five California students."[1] , we believe that an arts focus for our students can help prepare them for a fulfilling life of employment.
