HOUSE OF THE PERFORMING ARTS
Since Encore High School is the home of the pirates, each house is branded with their own pirate flag. The House of Performing Arts is nicknamed Selky. A Selky is from pirate lore and is a pirate monster that looked like a werewolf. They are human part of the time and can change into the wolflike creature. The performing artist transforms onstage and is therefore the Selky of the stage. The House of Performing Arts flag is the skull and crossbones adorned with the gold ear ring and the bright head scarf because performers love costumes. This flag represents the love of the theatrics from the House of the Performing Arts.
The House of the Performing Arts includes:

The House of Performing Arts covers all art forms that require stage performance. They will work mostly in groups and (as a result of group work) will regularly work after school for rehearsals and projects.

When a student graduates with a certification from the House of Performing Arts, it is the expectation that they will have a vase knowledge of the fundamentals of performing onstage.
