The Art Program is offered as a progressive five year program (grades 8-12). By the end of the first semester of their senior year, students already have a portfolio to present to Design Schools, as part of their admission requirements. Portfolios are available in both physical and digital formats. Seniors will also have everything necessary to present for AP Studio Art: Drawing Exam.
