Mentoring, empowering, developing and encouraging youth to become all that they were meant to be!
Have you heard what's going on?
There’s a buzz — an energy — around Creative Grounds Fine Arts Academy. We’re coming off an amazing performance weekend and we’re moving into a busy holiday season — and big things are happening. If you were at one of our shows over the weekend you’ve already heard the news.
Maybe you can't be onstage with us, but you can be just as involved. 
It's all about the kids
helping them become
who they were meant to be
It’s a joy for us to have the opportunity to invest in the lives of kids. All of the work that goes into a production — you may think we’re putting on a performance, but for us, it is not about the production. It’s about the kids. We are investing in their lives, giving them confidence, and helping them grow and become the people they were born to be. 
To help us reach our goal, a very special supporter has given us a $6,000 match. 
If you donate Right Now IT WILL BE DOUBLED!

Going ANY Further
We're more than just a theatre program!
Creative Grounds is more. We are a community that mentors students and strives to grow them as artists, not just individuals.  We strive to cultivate an environment that encourages mentor relationships from both adults to students and student to student. 

Our Student Leadership Team is just one aspect of our mentorship programming, but has successfully helped implement family groups within the rehearsal setting that continues to foster those mentor relationships. 

With your donation we've got plans to continue expanding our mentoring programming! Donate today!

"I think the biggest thing that touched our family was inclusivity beyond barriers of language, religion, faith, ethnicity...He has made friends that I feel will last a lifetime. "

"What strikes me the most is not only is it a family, it's a gathering of like minded people and everybody is a family unit with that, but the directors are very adamant about everybody getting a part and everybody being able to be in each show. "
Brooke & Jordan Scherer
"I really feel like it's got a purpose that's bigger than just ourselves. I really feel like it's got a purpose. And it's got an overarching goal that if we can get our kids involved in that, we can get our kids to listen to it and to engage in that, I think it's going to make them more successful as they get older.
