St. Peter's Community Arts Academy receives after school programming grant – FingerLakes1.com

This fall, St. Peter’s Community Arts Academy (SPCAA) and North Street School provide access to the arts for third grade students. Starting in October 2022, sixteen third graders from North St School will have the opportunity to study piano and violin, free of charge.
Through a generous grant from 21st Century Grants, and with SPCAA acting as a consultant, students will be shuttled from school to the Academy campus twice a week for lessons in both piano or violin. Each week eight students will work on piano and eight on violin and then they will switch.
The group will be transported via bus by the Geneva School District to and from practices for the entire school year. Rehearsals will last one hour from 3:30 – 4:30. Students will be selected by the third grade music teacher.
The Geneva City School district is the recipient of this grant and has collaborated with other local organizations like the Geneva Boys & Girls Club on similar future projects. In the near future a dance component will also be added. This funding is annual for the next five years.
