Mission Statement:

Sussex Central Centre for the Visual & Performing Arts aims to promote and foster opportunities for creative expression, performance, and connection throughout the wider community. Through academic and experiential learning, we serve the students of Sussex Central High School in their pursuit of well-rounded, cultured, and intellectually and emotionally informed citizenship.


The Centre for Visual & Performing arts endeavors to mold collaborative, confident, and caring individuals who will maintain a lifelong appreciation and participation in the arts. Students are not all expected to pursue professional aspirations of the arts but instead simply continue to enjoy them in some capacity.
