Welcome to the Performing and Fine Arts Academy (PFAA)

The Performing and Fine Arts Academy, serving grades 6-12, offers a unique balance of rigorous academic instruction and intensive instruction in the performing and fine arts. Areas of artistic training range from drama, dance, music and the fine arts to stagecraft and computer animation.

In addition to being named a National School of Distinction in the Performing and Fine Arts, The Performing and Fine Arts Academy has been regularly recognized in the local community through Elly (recognizing outstanding theatre in the Sacramento area) nominations and awards, participation in the Jammies (music recognition program for students), and many other events. All of our students are taught by arts teachers who continue to be professional practicing artists in the community, allowing students to learn not only the technical aspects of artistic expression, but also what it is like to be a professional practicing artist.

Academically, our students excel. Our academic teachers are highly trained and our courses are rigorous. Even with the rigor of our courses, the Academy routinely has over 70% of its students on the honor roll. Many high school seniors go on to prestigious four year universities and art schools.

Reduce summer brain drain and start the school year strong.  Plus, earn some extra credit and parent hours along the way.  Follow the links to find summer assignments.


Summer Math for All Grades - 6th, 7th, and 8th


Summer Reading for Incoming 6th Grade


Dear Incoming 6th-grade families

At the math placement tests, students were given a packet with summer work.  While summer work is optional, it is highly encouraged as a way to reduce a loss of skills and content.  We have done our best to create assignments that are fun and engaging, as well as providing choice for students and families.  These assignments are the same for PFAA and LE and can be done without access to NCS tech accounts.  

If your student misplaced the hard copies, links to the documents are available here:



Also in the packet was a Save-the-Date for Orientation

6th-grade parent and student orientation will be held  Tuesday, August 8th, 8:30-12:30.


Thank you!


The NCS school year calendar for 2017-18 is now available.
