More about (Boulder) Arts Focus Pathway (BAFP) program
Students will take part in visual and performing arts opportunities outside of the school day, thereby embedding the arts in their everyday lives. This will be done by completing a minimum number of hours attending arts events, taking lessons, participating in performances, or apprenticing in the arts community with a professional organization or individual artist. Each BAFP student will meet a minimum number of hours, which are as follows:
• Freshman = 5+ hours per semester
• Sophomore = 10+ hours per semester
• Junior = 15+ hours per semester
• Senior = 20+ hours per semester
We encourage upperclassmen to mentor with an artist/arts organization in the community in a career they are interested in. BAFP will match students with an opportunity. Parents will be required to meet with the volunteer, approve the mentorship, and supervise the “apprenticeship.” A teacher and the BAFP coordinator will assist in this opportunity.
