Philip J. Weaver Ed Center
Weaver Academy's mission is to develop and prepare independent learners and responsible citizens through strong academics and the passionate pursuit of the arts and career education.
The Weaver Academy for Performing and Visual Arts (PVA) is one of two performing and visual arts option high schools in Guilford County. The full-time school opened the fall of 2003 to rising 9th and 10th graders and graduated its first senior class in 2006. Students in the full-time high school apply, audition, and interview for selected spots in one of eight PVA tracks that include dance, drama, guitar, music production, piano, strings, visual arts, and vocal music. Currently, Weaver houses all four grade levels with a full time population of approximately 300 students.
Students attending Weaver Academy for Performing and Visual Arts follow the North Carolina course of study graduation requirements for a college university prep diploma in a sequenced pattern beginning with the ninth grade. The PVA Students are involved in a rigorous curriculum comprised of Honors and Advanced Placement courses designed to prepare them for higher education opportunities. In addition, students follow a specified course of study in their performing and visual arts area of concentration that will prepare them for collegiate and/or professional development. The performance academy continues to promote our students' professional growth as actors, dancers, singers, and musicians.
GCS students in grades 9-12 may attend Weaver for a portion of the school day to take Advanced Technology and career technical courses. These classes lead to career options and apprenticeships. By meeting course requirements, students are eligible for scholarships and course credits through the College Tech Prep programs beyond high school. Registration is available through the 15 traditional Guilford County high school counseling offices.
