What is Reflections?

The Reflections program provides opportunities for recognition and access to the arts which boost student confidence and success in the arts and in life.

This 50+ year-old program helps them explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful in school and in life.

The theme for the 2021-2022 program year is "I Will Change the World By.."
