Visual and Performing Arts Pathway Program

The Visual and Performing Arts Focus Pathway program was established in the 2016-2017 school year for students engaged in the arts here at Ronald E. McNair High School. The Program will provide students who are engaged with the arts opportunities to interact with the community, support their artistic passions in and outside of the classroom. 

Enrichment activities and other opportunities for pathway hours will be posted on this website on our calendar. Please check regularly here for updates.
