Academy of Creative Arts

The Bendigo South East College 
Academy of Creative Arts (ACA) nurtures the creativity, artistry and scholarship of students. It educates students to achieve excellence and mastery as performers, creators and makers, explorers and responders, and scholars, enriching through the immersion in the studies of The Arts: music, dance, drama and visual arts.

In 2017 Drama Victoria acknowledged the program’s innovative and strong curriculum in its annual awards. It says the program works with students to develop their skills and passion in performance arts in dance, vocals, drama, music and visual arts.
