Who We Are

Philadelphia Performing Arts: A String Theory Charter School is a tuition free, K-12 Public Charter School located in Philadelphia, and is open to all city residents. Founded in 2000, Performing Arts offers students a comprehensive arts and science curriculum that is central to the mission and culture of the school.

The children that enter our school each day are given opportunities to learn and discover that extend well beyond the walls of the classroom. From our enriching, arts-infused curriculum, to the inclusive culture of our school community and dedicated staff, we believe every student must be nurtured as an individual. Our education program allows students to develop academically, artistically, and socially in a safe environment so that they are prepared for success upon graduation.
