Well known for its excellence; Sandusky High School Arts programs have been nurturing, educating and developing student’s creativity in areas of Commercial Arts, Visual Arts, Photography, Computer Aided Design (CAD), Vocal and Instrumental Music, as well as Musical Theatre on a high level for decades. With the inception of the Great Lakes Visual & Performing Arts Academy, students will have the opportunity to explore more, create more and challenge themselves to excel in their chosen discipline.
Offering comprehensive academic curriculum and intensive pre-professional training, students will be prepared for the rigorous competition of program acceptance at the college level, as well as experience for the professional art world.
School children exposed to drama, music and dance may do a better job at mastering reading, writing and math than those who focus solely on academics, according to a report by the Arts Education Partnership.*
