It's a "Double Whammy"
for the Mckee Family at SCSOPA

"We love Santa Clarita School of Performing Arts! Mike, the owner, signed both my husband David Mckee Jr. and my son David III. I am so proud to announce they both are now working in the entertainment industry. SCSOPA gave them the training and tools they need to be successful and gave me a new career, too. I manage their careers! SCSOPA gave me the direction that I needed to become successful at juggling/managing their careers in the entertainment business.

The Mckee family is so grateful for everyone at SCSOPA who has educated us and given us the tools we need! I can't tell you how important it is to have professionals guide you down the right road. The drive from Lancaster is so worth it. Santa Clarita School of Performing Arts is the best performing arts school! A huge thank you to Mike, Craig and Lynn, not to mention all the awesome teachers (Who are working actors!) at SCSOPA for all you do! Our lives are changed because of you."

Help your Kids Unplug and Gain Skills for a Happy Life
What do kids really want to do this summer? Explore nature, ask questions and get dirty! And what do you want them to do? Develop 21st-century skills in communication, leadership, critical thinking, problem solving, social responsibility and environmental stability, of course.
