Introduction to the School

Pre-College programs offer a range of courses in visual and performing arts and writing for students in grades 9-12. Pre-College programs foster exploration and embolden students to think creatively and work collaboratively.

Saturday School includes eight-week classes offered in the fall and spring semesters to help students explore new disciplines and refine their creative skill-sets.

Summer Institute includes a dynamic set of three-week programs for rising 10-12th grade students who are passionate about expanding their creative practice. Students who successfully complete the program earn three college credits.

School Objectives

  • Strengthen students’ preparedness for an undergraduate admissions application in the arts, through development of new work for a portfolio, audition or interview.
  • Expand students’ vocabulary and skill set in their chosen discipline.
  • Provide opportunities for students to explore a range of creative disciplines, styles and techniques.
  • Strengthen skills in critical thinking and revision practice through critiques and workshops.
  • Strengthen skills needed to be a strong member of a studio community, by working with classmates through discussion, collaboration and feedback.
