PROGRAMS

Every creative environment has been intricately designed to Establish Trust, Cultivate Creativity, and Develop Leadership.  Our Creative Explorers receive a palatable schedule for discovering the arts, while our Creative Developers and Creative Mentors have the opportunity to choose their own major and minor subjects.  The combination of self-guidance, JAMS support, and instructor-led plans lead to a fulfilling experience.
