The Canandaigua City School District is seeking nominations for the inaugural class of the Canandaigua Academy Visual & Performing Arts Hall of Fame. Nominations are due by February 1, 2022. 

Establishment of the Canandaigua Academy Visual & Performing Arts Hall of Fame

On April 21, 2021, the Canandaigua City School District had the honor of approving  the creation of the Canandaigua Academy Visual and Performing Arts Hall of Fame. With a rich tradition of excellence in both fields, it was time to establish a program to recognize the remarkable achievements of our graduates and contributors to our programs. 

Inaugural Class will be honored at Homecoming 2022

As is the tradition with our Graduates of Distinction and Athletics Hall of Fame inductees, our honorees will be recognized at Homecoming. The arts are an integral part of our community and we want to celebrate the recipients accordingly. The date of Homecoming 2022 will be determined later this school year.
