ARTS CONSERVATORY CURRICULUM

​In order to properly align students with their passion and talent, each arts conservatory is broken into levels of learning based on either assessment audition or on progress throughout the school year. Art courses are student driven and may be added or removed based upon student interest.  EVERY ARTS COURSE is tied directly into a career technical education completer program and the expectation is that all students will be specifically enrolled into a CTE completer arts program by the year 2023.  Encore is introducing this formal program in the fall of 2020 and is anticipating two full school years to get all of the students into the correct program grades 7 - 12. 

​Encore has classes created for both conservatory level expertise and non conservatory level expertise.  Students wanting to go into a more rigorous arts training audition to get into a conservatory class/pathway.  Students not wanting to go into a conservatory level course have entry level lab classes that tie into completer pathways. 

​All of Encore's arts teachers will hold the required CTE credential or teaching credentials by July 1, 2025 pursuant to Education Code Sections 47605(I) and 47605.4(a).
