MISSION and SCHOOL DESIGN
MISSION: To advance artistry, academic achievement, and responsible leadership
All KM Perform students choose an area of focus. Six credits of arts and a 2-year Portfolio are required in the chosen area
KM Perform is a competency-based school. Credit is awarded when proficiency is demonstrated, Instead of offering courses, content is delivered in 3 school design components that include content, application, and performance.
- Seminars - 4-6 weeks in length, complete interdisciplinary seminars. All cores and fine arts are taught through seminars. Seminars often end with a performance that is open to the public.
- Studio day - a dedicated day each week time allows for attention to individual projects and time with assigned staff mentors.
- Workshops - 1-2 weeks, focused on specific artistic skills or academic skills. Guest artists and community members frequently work with students during workshop weeks.
