Aurora Theatre

Aurora Theatre is the fastest-growing professional theatre in Georgia and offers GCPS students of our Fine Arts Academy incredible opportunities to discover their artistic skills. Some of these opportunities include internships, job shadowing, and plenty of tickets to see Aurora’s world-class productions. In 2016, the Aurora Theatre opened a satellite office on our campus, making it much easier for the Theatre’s Education Coordinator to work with students and nurture their talents. Artists from Aurora Theatre also co-teach and are frequent guest speakers.

Peach State Federal Credit Union is a vital part of our community in more ways than one. In addition to serving their members, they also lend support to our Law, Entrepreneurship, and Public Service Academy through work-based learning, field trip sponsorship, guest speakers, and more. In fact, they employ five student interns who manage and operate the branch inside of Central Gwinnett High School.
