What we do
We are our students’ and educators’ advocates. We raise awareness and funds to advance the Carver Center’s unique programming in arts and career technology, while promoting the highest levels of academic and social standards for student achievement.
The Carver Center community supports and engages students with passion for, dedication to, and talent in: acting, carpentry, cosmetology, culinary arts, dance, design and production, digital instrumental music, information technology/interactive media production, literary arts, visual arts or vocal music. By immersing students in challenging and rigorous programs, implemented through the fusion of these disciplines with academics, evolving technologies, and professional experiences, Carver Center prepares students to make informed future education and career choices.
The Carver Center Foundation provides advocacy and funding support for scholarships, student educational activities, teacher enrichment, classroom furnishings, and Prime equipment. Recent funding support includes:
- Host Carver Celebration each spring, the Foundation’s largest fundraising event. This honors all our primes, our students, our faculty and staff;
