About University of North Carolina School of the Arts
The UNCSA Academic Program provides unparalleled liberal arts training commensurate with the intensive conservatory training of our young artists. Our 17 full-time faculty teach approximately 250 young artists in grades 9-12 across the core disciplines of English, Mathematics, Modern Language, Science, and Social Studies. As such, we have a student-teacher classroom ratio of 14:1. Student-artists earn their diploma from the Academic Program, while also earning a certificate in one of four artistic disciplines: Dance, Drama, Music, or Visual Arts. We are the only public, residential arts conservatory in the country in which many high school students attend arts classes alongside their college counterparts, taught by the same internationally-renowned faculty. Our students then enter their respective arts profession or matriculate to the finest conservatories and universities or in the world. And most importantly, they are really good people.
