The South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities (SCGSAH) welcomes students for the 2013/14 High School program. Students moved in August 10 and 11 and began orientation for the new year.
This public residential high school serves students state-wide and is located in downtown Greenville. The 2013/14 High School program offers rigorous academics and pre-professional training in one of five arts areas: Creative Writing, Dance, Drama, Music or Visual Arts. Summer Programs are offered in each of the art areas. Nearly 1000 students applied to SCGSAH Summer and High School programs this audition season.
“Education here takes on a different meaning, where academics are just as challenging as the art in which students study,” says Dr. Bruce Halverson, President of SCGSAH. “Students have an opportunity to learn with the best faculty and take the next steps in their artistic and/or academic careers.”
Academic instructors all have attained Masters and/or Doctorate degrees. Artistic faculty members are active in their disciplines led by a collection of distinguished Department Chairs: award-winning, published author Scott Gould, world-renowned dancer and choreographer Josée Garant, nationally accomplished actor/director Daniel Murray, experienced conductor/musician Dr. David Hamilton, and successful artist/sculptor Joe Thompson.
Students with a passion for art become better artists and students at SCGSAH. This public residential high school has the third highest SAT scores in South Carolina. They are ranked in the top 1% in academics for public schools, according to Newsweek. The 2013 graduating class accumulated approximately $26.5M in scholarship offers.
