Simon Center for the Arts

Construction is now complete on the new 7,200 square-foot Simon Center for the Arts at Falmouth Academy.  The contemporary Simon Center is the premier venue for the Upper Cape’s burgeoning cultural and artistic communities.  The center is a space for arts education and performance, meeting the needs of students and teachers, and serving as a cultural hub for the greater community — local arts organizations and nonprofit partners. 

The Simon Center is home to concerts, theater productions, fine art exhibits, arts education, lectures, cinema, community outreach programs, and cultural events.  It is a collaborative place where students, educators, professional artists, and patrons can engage, learn, and share in a medley of enriching arts and cultural experiences year-round.

The dramatic renovation and expansion of the existing performance facility has created a beautiful, comfortable, state-of-the-art, multi-use space.

The Simon Center for the Arts Fosters Creativity and Community

The professionally appointed Simon Center for the Arts fosters the growth and creativity of all artists — aspiring and professional — and encourages a more vibrant social, cultural, and intellectual environment for the whole community.

Our Students:  The arts are an integral part of a truly well-rounded education.  At Falmouth Academy, we embrace the ideology that the arts are a crucial component in learning.  Creativity is essential to intellectual development, problem solving, innovation, and the ability to express and interpret ideas. The Simon Center gives us the necessary tools to support key learning initiatives and prepare students to confidently engage the challenges of our times.

Our Partners:  Falmouth Academy has been home and host to many notable arts organizations and nonprofit partners who share their vast artistic talents through performances and events at our campus.  We value these relationships for the creative, educational, and intellectual experiences they bring to our students, and for the cultural enrichment they offer the community.  A contemporary performing arts center is important to these guest performers — as a place for them to employ their craft, quality performance space is central to their needs.
