“It’s Not a Question of Art in Education, Art is Education”
As an integral part of a strong academic program, the School of the Arts challenges both the intellectual and aesthetic capabilities of students. Students engage in a rigorous course of art study that broadens creative interests, develops artistic skills and abilities, and promotes physical, intellectual, emotional and social growth. The School Of The Arts provides a framework for students to explore and to develop their artistic abilities, to participate in integrated learning experiences, and to develop skills in critical and creative thinking, problem recognition/problem solving, and teamwork. In addition to developing their own artistic ability, students focus on enhancing their knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of the arts through the study of a variety of world cultures, historical periods, and contemporary styles and trends.
Students enrolled in the School of the Arts must complete at least four-course requirements in one of the following four arts disciplines: Dance, Music, Theatre Arts, or Visual Arts. In addition to meeting Academy requirements, students must graduate under the College Tech Prep or College Prep Programs. Interested students must be high school students (rising freshman – senior) enrolled in the Cumberland County School system that has a GPA of at least 2.7on a 4.0 scale with a 3.0 in arts discipline.
