SMCHS ARTS ALLIANCE

The Arts Alliance, Giving Wings to the ARTS at SMCHS

WHAT IS THE ARTS ALLIANCE?

The Arts Alliance is a parent-led organization whose mission is to raise visibility and to support the Visual and Performing Arts Programs at Santa Margarita Catholic High School.

  • We coordinate volunteer opportunities that support Performing Arts and Visual Arts events.
  • We fund-raise to provide arts enrichment activities for students.
  • Meet and socialize with fellow arts families.
Information regarding the Arts Alliance Fall and Spring Social coming soon.

For more information about The Arts Alliance, please email: ArtsAlliance@smhs.org
