University of North Carolina School of the Arts

The University of North Carolina School of the Arts would like to request an invitation to the Okeechobee High School College Fair on Friday, October 6, 2017.  We are very excited to join FACRAO this year!  My email is the best contact for the college fair registration information.

UNCSA is unique among the 17 schools in the University of North Carolina system. We are a professional training ground for exceptionally talented and ambitious young artists.

At the heart of the profound UNCSA experience is the conservatory model of teaching and learning. Across all five of our conservatories — DanceDesign and ProductionDrama,Filmmaking, and Music — students learn one-on-one from professional artists in supportive mentor-apprentice relationships. In a conservatory, you’ll learn by doing, by trying, by failing and by creating something unimaginable.

The UNCSA conservatory experience is intense and invigorating. Yes, students work incredibly hard, but they put in the extra hours of rehearsal and editing and studio time because they love it. Challenged and encouraged by faculty mentors, surrounded by brilliant and creative peers, the conservatory provides a transformative artistic experience for aspiring professionals.
