Individualized advising and collaboration are our game

Our program boasts a Disney scholar among its faculty and we offer an opportunity for students to go behind the scenes at Disney every January. With students constantly recognized for their experience and achievements, we’re always traveling to state, regional, and national competitions to show or original media work.
