All of this is at no cost to the student.  Students accepted to this exciting program will have the opportunity to participate in challenging academic classes and develop their artistic skills through participation in specialized classes and ensembles at the high school and at Rowan University through a cooperative dual credit program. Openings for Glassboro and out-of-district students will be made available through an audition process in the areas of art, band, strings, and choir.

     

    Students accepted to the Academy will be given a specialized fine arts education, where academic teachers team up with the Music and Art departments to offer activities that include college credit classes, individual and class instruction, and participation in both high school and college level ensembles.  Students will take advantage of all honors classes as well as a large offering of Advanced Placement classes at Glassboro High School.  The school’s master course schedule will be built around the Academy schedule and Academy students will get priority scheduling.  Academy students will be able to take advantage of the high quality courses and ensembles at Glassboro High School, as well as the Art Honor Society and the Tri-M Music Honor Society.
