    Music is a unique and powerful form of communication that transcends the limits of verbal expression. It involves and affects both thought and emotion and makes a unique contribution to the growth and development of children and society as a whole.

    Each student has an inherent need to develop avenues for self-expression and communication.  It is the goal of AACPS to provide a program which ensures that all students have access to a program where they can learn to value music through the acquisition of skills, knowledge and concepts.  A foundation should be formed for a lifetime of musical experiences and growth.    


    Latest Updates: 2020 AACPS Summer Music Camp

    6/4/2020:  Thank you for your patience and understanding regarding the status of the 2020 AACPS Music Camp at NorthBay. Keeping the health and safety of our students and staff members is our first and foremost priority. In light of this fact, the 2020 AACPS Music Camp at NorthBay is cancelled.


    • Tuition paid with Online School Payments – a refund will be processed and posted to your credit card used for payment. A 4% fee was added with payment through OSP.  Only the cost of the camp will be refunded; the OSP fee is not refundable.

    Due to the large volume of refunds being processed associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, credit card companies may take up to 30 days to process refunds to the customer account.

    • For tuition paid by deposited check, we are processing refunds now. You can expect to see payment within two weeks.
    • For tuition paid by checks that have not yet been deposited, we will be mailing those back to you via USPS within the next week.

    We appreciate your support for music education and hope to see you next summer!
