PROGRAMS AT MCCALLUM FINE ARTS ACADEMY

What We Offer

The MAC FAA has 10 majors: 1)Band, 2)Choral Studies, 3)Cinematic Arts, 4)Classical Guitar, 5)Collaborative Piano, 6)Dance, 7)Orchestra, 8)Performance Theatre, 9)Technical Theatre, and 10)Visual Arts.  In addition, those students majoring in Choral Studies, Dance, and Performance Theatre also have the option to specialize in Musical Theatre through additional coursework.


Several Fine Arts courses are double-blocked, meaning the course takes up two class periods in the students’ schedules. Our experience is that even the most ambitious students wishing to take the most rigorous academic course load available can successfully complete all needed/wanted courses. Also, to allow room in the schedule during the regular school year, students can take summer school, “zero” hour classes, and/or dual credit through our partnership with Austin Community College if needed.
