MEDIA + VISUAL ARTS ACADEMY
The Media + Visual Arts Academy allows students to explore a variety of vocational pathways as freshmen, attending classes such as: Audio/Visual Production, Broadcasting Technology, Graphic Technology, Fine/Studio Arts, Interactive Media, Photography and Journalism/Writing for Media. By the end of sophomore year, students will be prepared with the skills and/or technology needed to focus on one program of study in junior and senior year.
Juniors will commit to a two-year vocational program where they will begin their vocational study in earnest preparation for post-secondary study and/or employment. Students will choose from one of the courses they participated in while underclassmen. Having chosen a field in which they are prepared to excel, students at this level participate in a studio environment that cultivates innovative and exceptional projects in their respective subjects. Seniors are expected to have gained a sufficient working knowledge of the basic theoretical and technical concepts that they can begin working with local industries and colleges to begin the transition to the workforce. This will take the form of internships, part-time jobs, independent projects, and college-level courses. All of this is geared to placing a student in the right pathway for their post-secondary future. The Media + Visual Arts pathway allows students to pursue rigorous Advanced Placement courses in addition to their Core Requirements.
