School of Creative & Performing Arts (SOCAPA)


SOCAPA dedicates itself to fostering the next generation of artists by offering arts-intensive summer programs for teens in Filmmaking, Acting, Photography, Music, Screenwriting, and Dance. Our campuses in Los Angeles, New York, and Burlington, Vermont offer 1-6 week camps where students study their art in a state-of-the-art setting during the day and enjoy structured extracurriculars in the evenings and weekends (such as trips to Venice Beach, Times Square, or off-Broadway shows). Every student leaves the program with completed work to show family and friends, or to include in college applications. Longer programs also offer the opportunity to earn college credit.
