Welcome to CCPA!
Welcome to the homepage of the Chicago College of Performing Arts. As Dean, I have the privilege of interacting with our remarkable faculty and students. When I go to a performance, either of the Theatre Conservatory or the Music Conservatory, I get chills from the extraordinary level of accomplishment demonstrated by all of our students, and feel extraordinarily proud of how our faculty has helped them to develop their talents to the fullest. We pride ourselves on preparing young artists for careers in the performing arts, and in creating a mutually supportive and encouraging culture in which they can flourish.
- Henry Fogel, Dean of CCPA
