The Cobb County Center for Excellence in the Performing Arts (CCCEPA) is a magnet program at Pebblebrook High School. The program is open to any talented student in Cobb County who meets eligibility and audition requirements. Each
student is enrolled in a major - voice, dance, or drama. A large number of students "double major" and take classes in two areas. Students study in their major concentration area for two class periods each day totaling two hours.
They are required to remain in the program every semester of their high school careers. Students are actively involved in extracurricular performances and are given the opportunity to work with top professionals in the arts from the Atlanta area and throughout the United States.

Emphasis is placed on an academic approach to the arts, and training
received during the school day is strictly classical. Auditions
are held each spring for rising 9th graders,
and at any time during the year for
students wishing to transfer.


Graduates of The Center are currently attending major colleges, universities, and conservatories throughout the United States, including: American Academy of Dramatic Arts, Belmont University, Carnegie Mellon University, Columbus State University, Converse College, Elon College, Emerson College, The Florida State University, Indiana University, The Juilliard School, New York University, North Carolina School of the Arts, Oberlin Conservatory, Point Park College, Shenandoah Conservatory, Shorter College, Southern Methodist University, The University of Arizona, The University of the Arts, The University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, The University of Georgia, The University of Michigan,
