PSJA Fine Arts Mission

The mission of the Fine Arts Department is to provide all PSJA students access to a high-quality fine arts education in art, dance, music, and theatre from pre-kinder through graduation.  PSJA ISD Fine Arts students have the opportunity to explore their passion for the arts in a variety of disciplines and settings.  They showcase their talents often through performances at campus, district, and community events.  All of our Fine Arts students also have the opportunity to earn recognition through UIL events and other competitions.
