The Mount Pisgah Arts Academy is an extracurricular extension of the MPCS Fine Arts program. Our mission is to encourage student achievement by offering private, after school instruction, and to increase engagement and develop relationships with both our MPCS families and with the broader community of Johns Creek.

MPAA offers private musical instruction as well as select dance and drama group classes. Private lessons run for 14 classes per semester, while group classes run for 12 classes per semester.

*Please note that schedules are limited and places will be determined on a first come/first served basis*
