SMArtSummer

Get inspired and discover your hidden passions this summer at SMArtSummer! A six-week program for students entering first through twelfth grades, it offers a more dynamic, more rewarding instructional experience than a typical summer camp. Instead of arts and crafts, kids enjoy Arts + the Sciences that fuses together creative skills, processes and academic disciplines.

Our 2018 program held a total of 76 camps with enrollment of 709 campers, awarded 133 scholarships and accepted 80 volunteers that provided 4,481 hours of service!

Hundreds of campers enjoy:

Performing on stage at Cab’s state of the art theater

Learning how to cook in our culinary arts camp

Taking care of animals in our Veterinary 101 camp

Programming video games, graphic designs, and 3D

Photography, Watercolors, Anime, Stained Glass

And so much more!

Scholarships are available for many of the camps. Please click here to apply.

2020 will be our summer camp program’s 10 year anniversary! Please stay tuned and check back for announcements on how you can participate in this special event.

Piano

The Cab Fund initially established and funded the Piano program over 10 years ago as an elective course. With support from parents, the school, the community and the hard work of Cab Fund volunteers, Piano has blossomed into a major course of study with over 120 students. Piano majors are diverse with over 20 different languages spoken at home in addition to English. Our ebony and ivory tinkers are academically successful too as over 70% are currently honor students and 35% distinguished honors (straight A’s!).

 

See the video below to learn how our students are succeeding in Piano and Strings.

Recording Studio

After some initial fits and starts, The Cab Calloway School Fund has launched the Cab Recording Studio!

Situated between the visual studio and the piano room, the studio now boasts state-of-the-art hardware and software, a complete elective course, and a Fund sponsored professional recording studio engineer. The engineer provides students with hands-on expert instruction on developing the skills and know-how to record and mix multi-track audio content.

The Fund hopes to increase participation in this elective via improved student and faculty awareness of the program. Major programs that may not be able to currently utilize the studio’s capabilities will hopefully be able to access performances due to planned future upgrades to enhance the studio’s interconnectedness to the Cab Theater audio console. This new feature would allow performances from the Theater to be recorded and mixed by recording studio students and made available for enjoyment by majors such as Piano, Strings, Musical Theater… essentially any performance in the Theater would have access to professionally recorded audio.

A true interdisciplinary program.

For now, listen to some musical tracks below for just a taste of what the studio is up to!
