The Paola Community Center is a rare and wonderful place. Constructed on the beautiful Ursuline Academy Grounds in Paola, Kansas, the Center is home for much of the community based activity for Miami County and the many cities it includes.

The Paola Community Center, serves as an arts showcase for Paola and Miami County's diverse communities, offers multicultural arts and education programming in its restored landmark building.

With community plays, music concerts, children's activities, cultural festivals, movie nights and the children's Summer Enrichment Program the Center strives to serve the entire community.
