The Performing Arts at ISAAC includes both in and out of school experiences that allow students to be both experienced performers and critical audience members. In school, there are elective classes that apply the National and Connecticut Standards for theater education and allow students to develop skills in self-expression, public speaking, and performing. These skills are also utilized in the core classes through integrated projects.

Students participate in a large expedition creating an original theatrical program. The students write the script, compose music, design costumes and make-up, build sets, design and build lighting and props, manage, promote, assess and act in an original performance. This experience is cited by students and alumni as one of the most powerful during their education at ISAAC.

As audience members, ISAAC students are trained to be critical thinkers, enjoying various events at the Garde Arts Center and other local performances. These events enhance the academic learning that occurs throughout the year.
