Welcome to Nevada City School of the Arts
NCSA is a public charter school serving Kindergarten-8th grade students throughout Nevada County, California. The shared vision of our school is to provide a rigorous academic environment, using art as a lens to shape curriculum.
“The Arts—Music, Dance, Theater, and the Visual Arts—are crucial to the complete education of a child. Their practice, understanding and appreciation are essential to human experience and learning itself. Participation in the arts fosters a balanced and enriched life and engenders a commitment to excellence. The Arts are not simply a means; they are an end in themselves. The Arts make us human and whole”. – NCSA Philosophy Statement
