Students admitted to Digital Arts and Cinema Technology High School choose between the two arts tracks: Digital Arts or Cinema Production. They will then embark on an intensive study and production course sequence.

In each track, students will learn fundamental and complex concepts/skills necessary in the respective fields, while simultaneously being provided the time, support and reflection to develop their artistic body of work.


In a blend of art and computer science, digital art students will develop their artistic, design and technology skills using industry-standard software and devices. Through creative problem-solving, exposure to S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) content and critical reflection, students will gain conceptual knowledge while building a sophisticated portfolio for college and/or creative

technology-based career.
