ARTS Major Pathways

Students choosing to pursue a major pathway in the ARTS Academy can choose from among six unique courses of study. 

The Academy of Arts was created to serve the needs of students who live in lower New Castle County and want to pursue an art-infused, yet highly competitive, high school academic program. Arts programs are designed to explore and develop the creative potential of students interested in performing and/or visual arts.

We recognize Arts Academy students are more likely to need to learn how to market their talents, therefore a Marketing minor is required for students in this Academy (Marketing minor is an elective for STEM Academy majors).
