The PAC contains a 1200 seat Main Auditorium, a 250 seat Black Box Theatre, Dance studio, Multi-purpose room, Kiln room, and an individual recording studio.

Construction of the PAC was approved under the 2008 Bond program.

In 2012, building construction began, lead by American Constructors Inc. The Austin ISD PAC officially opened its doors on Thursday, January 22, 2015 with the Fine Arts Student Showcase.
