Performing Fine Arts Magnet

PFA Magnet Logo

The University High School Performing Fine Arts Magnet immerses students from across Orange County into a comprehensive performance-based curriculum. The program develops creative thinking as an artist, confidence in performance, and prepares students for college auditions, should they continue in that direction.

Students in the Performing Arts Magnet select one of four tracks:

  • The Vocal Track is for singers who will be joining our nationally recognized choral program.
  • The Theatrical Track is for performers who wish to focus on our drama program.
  • The Instrumental Track includes our award-winning Band, Orchestra, Piano, and Guitar programs.
  • The Dance Track features both modern and traditional dance styles and techniques.

Performing Arts Magnet students are eligible for two performing ensembles each year, as well as a third elective to go deeper, focusing on music theory, stagecraft, musical theater, and more.
