A College Prep Curriculum with Emphasis in Digital Arts
The College Prep and Digital Arts Magnet at Grant High School is committed to providing crucial skills and college-preparatory instruction in all academic subjects with a focus on Advanced Placement (AP) and Honors levels. Students in our program are given the opportunity to experience college-level texts and interdisciplinary lessons that hone their reading, critical thinking, and writing skills. We also infuse technology and digital media across the academic curricula, from our projects in web-based research and visual rhetoric, to our exclusive Magnet pathways such as Video Production, Digital Imaging, and Digital Photography.
Our vision is to foster a diverse community of ethical learners who are prepared not only for the rigors of higher academia, but also for the demands of a technology-driven workforce in an ever-changing global society. Our school community is composed of motivated students, involved parents, and highly qualified teachers who understand the importance of post-secondary education and who work together to achieve success.
