Students have many different opportunities to display their talents both on our campus, as well as throughout the community, the state, the nation, and the world. Our chorus has been selected as the Featured Chorus at Carnegie Hall in New York, and our thespian troupe is the highest regarded in the state. Our musicians have earned countless superior rankings with distinctions at the state and national level, and our artists have had their artworks selected for exhibits in galleries throughout the world. Our students also compete in regional, state, and national competitions.

We expect our students to be well-rounded, so we integrate a complete historical foundation in all disciplines of study. We begin teaching the arts as early as pre-kindergarten, and our student to teacher ratio allows personal attention for each student to develop at their own level, whether the student is a beginner or an accomplished artist. We look forward to watching your child flourish in the arts throughout their years at American Heritage Schools. “All the world’s a stage!” We hope to see you at our concerts and theatrical productions this season.

Looking forward to meeting you…
