School of the Arts
Artistic expression opens young minds to the realms of “what if” and “why not,” stretching the imagination in ways that influence every aspect of learning. It is for this reason that Mid-Pacific has made the arts an integral part of every student’s core curriculum. We believe that the arts are as much a part of an individual's development and success as they are a part of a meaningful and enlightened society.
Mid-Pacific offers intensive arts training in dance, hula, instrumental music, media, musical theatre, theatre, visual arts, and voice. Here, students have the opportunity to immerse themselves in art - its technique, theory, history and, of course, performance. Whether they are fulfilling their arts elective requirements for graduation or are pursuing accelerated training through the School of the Arts Certificate Program, all students are trained by faculty who are accomplished teachers as well as noted working artists in their respective fields.

“Mid-Pacific has provided an incredible foundation for my creative life. As an actress I have worked on many successful television shows like Gilmore Girls, Prodigal Son and Better Call Saul to name a few and I attribute that success to the great teachers in my life. Linda Johnson was crucially important to my development. I will be forever grateful for her passion, insight and good humor. Her guidance and the environment that I found at Mid-Pacific gave me the tools to begin a lifelong career in the arts.”
