Connected to the existing Ovey Comeaux High School via a 40-foot-long, storefront enclosed corridor, the school’s new Performing Arts Academy is a 21,350 SF addition to the growing campus.

The new facility provides the students with individual, acoustically-sound classrooms specifically designed for a variety of performing arts disciplines. Previously, students shared their spaces with other courses either in the existing building or in classroom trailers.
The new performing arts classroom spaces in the expansion include: Guitar Room; Strings Room; Piano Room; Music Media Center including a soundproof Recording Studio; Dance Studio equipped with a sprung floor assembly and ballet barres; and a Black Box Drama Theatre with catwalk, LED lights, projector screen, control booth, separate dressing rooms, costume room, and scene shop.
