The Visual and Performing Arts Proficiency standards reinforce the objectives outlined in the Profile of the South Carolina Graduate. The standards are designed to prepare South Carolina learners to meet new challenges in college and career readiness through contextual knowledge, training, and life and career skills that will create a better-prepared workforce for tomorrow.
