As part of its regular theatre season, CAPA offers select student matinee performances each year. These shows are an enjoyable way for students and teachers to experience a performance and learn about the works and artists who present them. Some performances include advance program materials and/or artist-hosted master classes. Select artists also make in-school appearances for master classes and/or demonstrations. In 2012, jazz pianist Alfredo Rodriguez conducted a master class with the jazz band at Columbus Alternative High School with many other students in the audience. Participants were given complimentary tickets to Mr. Rodriguez' performance later that evening at the Lincoln Theatre.

In September 2006, CAPA proudly adopted Highland Elementary, and in September 2007, added Walnut Ridge High School to our program.

Students of both schools are eligible to attend performances at CAPA venues, see performances and workshops in their school, and use study guides provided by CAPA to better their understanding of the arts. CAPA provides tickets, transportation, study materials, and in-school sessions. Hundreds of students have been involved at all grade levels. Shows have included: A Christmas Carol, Crowns, Big Apple Circus, The Secret Garden, La Boehme, Tango Fire, and Cinderella. Workshops and master classes have included: Alfredo Rodriguez, Tiempo Libre, The Second City, TS Monk, and Edgar Meyer.
