The Arts Magnet Program (AMP) provides four years of pre-professional training in the Visual and Performing Arts, including Choir, Orchestra, Dance, Theater, and Drawing & Painting. The mission of JSerra’s Arts Magnet Program is to create independent thinkers and leaders who will contribute inventively and critically to their culture through their artistic discipline. At the core of the Arts Magnet Program is a series of discipline-specific courses which develop students’ skills to an advanced level in their principle art form.

In the Arts Magnet Program, I was not only able to learn about the field of my choice but also my peers. I constantly grew as an artist. Moreover, I was surrounded by teachers who care and want to help me grow in all aspects that I can.
