About the Application Process
The Arts and Entertainment Institute is a four-year comprehensive program, which fosters a student-centered learning community, with a culture of creative development, hands on learning, and organized processing.
The integration of academic disciplines, combined with the A&E Acting or Directing pathways, allow students to develop transferable skill sets, aimed at maximizing not only a student’s creative and adaptive skills, but also skills in communication, collaboration, service, and leadership. The Arts and Entertainment Institute at Forsyth Central is a dynamic and growing collective of highly trained students looking to share their creativity and diligence through rigorous coursework and product development.
Students are selected, much like a college application process, by a team of reviewers who evaluate applicants based on creativity, work habits, interest in film related subjects, and a video submission. This is a competitive admissions process and each year the number of highly qualified applicants will increased.
- Applicants must be in the eighth grade and a full-time resident of Forsyth County (at this time we will only be accepting applications from Forsyth Central feeder schools)
- Since it is a 4-year program, students may only enter the A&E Institute in 9th grade.
- Applicants must have taken at least one fine arts class in middle school to apply.
