The Department of Arts Education for the Jefferson County School system has developed a program that allows students gifted in the performing arts the opportunity to study their craft in a professionally-oriented setting. Each year, a select group of students is chosen to attend the theatre academy that is housed at Shades Valley High School. They attend Shades Valley as regular students and also become members of the nationally-acclaimed Shades Valley Theatre Academy.
