RSA Elective Information

The elective program is an enrichment opportunity for children who are successful in the regular academic program, including home study/independent study students. Its purpose is to allow students to experience and explore different aspects of Visual & Performing Arts (VAPA) and/or focus on a particular interest. The second through fourth grade students are required to take at least one art elective class during the school year. To enrich the thematic units, art will be included during the academic day by the homeroom teacher for first through fourth grade students.

Course descriptions are included to help with your child’s selection. Please keep in mind that many elective programs require a monetary commitment (materials fee), or specific dance clothing and shoes. Classes are offered on the basis of the enrollment of 15 or more students.
