Galaxy’s Mission

As its primary mission, Galaxy seeks to provide support and resources to local school districts to nurture and sustain a comprehensive Arts program for all students, thereby enhancing a school’s academic offerings and improving student achievement across the curriculum.  Galaxy also strives to bring quality professional artists into community organizations across the region, so that populations of any age can engage in and enjoy rich and varied arts experiences.

In Partnership with the PA Council on the Arts

Since 1994 Galaxy has worked in partnership with the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts to improve the quality of arts education across the region by creating and promoting opportunities that have a positive impact on students and other populations in the community.

This project was made possible through the AIE Partnership of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. The PCA Arts in Education Partner in this region is Galaxy / Central Intermediate Unit 10.

The Pennsylvania Council on the Arts (PCA) is charged with the development and promotion of the arts in the Commonwealth.  To accomplish its mission, the PCA encourages educational excellence through participation in the creative process in schools and educational settings.  Study of the arts provides Pennsylvania’s youth with positive models for teamwork, project management and goal setting, along with opportunities for academic achievement and intellectual and emotional discovery.
