By partnering with schools to become an extension of their classroom and further enhance learning through arts experiences, many children will be exposed to the arts. Arts education improves academic achievement and student success. All educational programming is performed by national and regional touring companies, and all camps and classes are taught by local certified instructors.

NPAC will continue to offer a variety of school-day educational programming for area students that will include professional productions that correlate with the state curriculum guidelines. Four-Five school day educational performances will be offered for the 2024-2025 school year.
