Students will express their creativity through painting, drawing, acting, dancing, music, and more, all while exploring how cultures affect and change artistic expression.

The students learn the five competencies of Social-Emotional Learning: Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, Relationship Skills, and Responsible Decision-Making. These important skills help students to manage healthy relationships and stressful workloads that they will experience in the future.

Students will explore how to set financial goals, create a budget, learn banking language, learn how to appropriately use credit cards, apply for student loans, and pay for college.
