Our Mission

The Acalanes Performing Arts Boosters champions and helps sustain a high quality performing arts education at Acalanes High School. We are a parent led organization with individual discipline boards for the Choral, Drama and Instrumental Music programs. These boards also collectively work together on the APAB board to support our performing arts teachers and students.

Please join us! APAB and the individual discipline board meetings are open to families of Acalanes students who participate in the performing arts. Please drop us an email to learn more about our meetings and how you can lend a hand in supporting our programs!
