My Students

The students at The School for Creative Studies are just that: CREATIVE! Our curriculum is enhanced not only by our professionally-experienced-in-the-field teachers, but also by our extraordinary curriculum! The School for Creative Studies has classes in Architecture, Video Production, Graphic Design, and Art, to name a few. At our school, we focus on each student's natural talents and we hone in on them in order to help them to grow into stronger artists, expressionists, and wholesome individuals.

My Project

Aside from learning remotely this year, students at The School for Creative Studies are in need of basic school supplies as a companion to their online learning.

Utilizing pencils and paper in tandem with online instruction via virtual classrooms, students will have the tools that they need not only to succeed, but to feel 'at-home' in this new virtual learning environment.

In order to make every child's potential a reality, we must engage and empower the students and community by advocating for them, especially in these trying times of the pandemic.
