The St. Johns County School District and the St. Johns County School Board support arts instruction in all schools and at all levels, K-12. Every elementary school has both a full time art and music teacher. Secondary school arts programs vary according to student interest and enrollment. The St. Johns County Centers for the Arts (SJCCA) are located at R. J. Murray Middle School and St. Augustine High School. At SJCCA, sequential courses are offered in visual and performing arts: chorus, instrumental music/band, drama, and dance. Students must apply to attend the SJCCA schools. Students will audition into appropriate class levels.
