With a humble beginning, a long up-and-down history of growth and development, and a determined sense of responsibility, the College has advanced to become a legitimate academic institution for traditional theatre professionals. We conduct a continuous education system designed to fulfìll our mission of nurturing artistic talents in the major fìelds of traditional theatre: Jing Ju (or Beijing opera), Acrobatics, Xi Qu Music, Taiwanese opera, Theatre Arts, and Hakka Opera. This system is composed of four academic divisions (training stages): “elementary (foundational stage), junior high (basic stage), senior vocational high (advanced stage), and college (mastery stage), and each academic department conducts a 12-year, 10-year, or 7-year program respectively. Step-by-step and individualized pedagogy is applied, and the goal is developing traditional theatre artists with unique skills and profound humanism.
With a long history of excellence and accomplishment, the school is devoted to the mission of "Heritage and Innovation, Mastery and Excellence". “Traditional theatre reaching out to the world” is essential to the future of NTCPA, so we do pursue not only cross-strait exchange but also international culture conversation and artistic communication. Firmly established on the local and looking beyond to the world, the goal of NTCPA is to open up a new landscape for traditional theatre in Taiwan.

本校在既有優良傳統與弘揚戲曲之雙重使命下,本諸「承先啟後,精益求精」之校訓,為戲曲藝術持續開拓新境界。「傳統戲劇深入到世界」是NTCPA必不可少的未來,所以我們所追求的不僅是兩岸交流,且是國際對話和藝術交流。根植臺灣本土,展望世界未來, NTCPA的目標確立於開拓傳統戲劇在台灣的新景觀。
