COMMA gives your child a distinct edge in preparing for college. The unique mentorship and art encounters that COMMA provides will set your child apart from the crowd. Imagine a college essay on how the Bay Area arts scene shaped your child's perspectives and even their understanding of themselves.
Cultural education is invaluable. It adds depth to the soul and a more nuanced understanding of the world.
At COMMA, students form friendships, have meaningful fun, and find inspiration that lasts a lifetime.
We think that Xerox executive Joseph Calahan said it well:
“Arts education aids students in skills needed in the workplace:
flexibility, the ability to solve problems and communicate,
the ability to learn new skills, to be creative and innovative,
and to strive for excellence.”
Through superior arts education, COMMA gives your child the capacity to excel in any field.
