"The best way to predict your future is to create it" - Abraham Lincoln
With the help of expert teachers working in small class sizes, ranging from 16-20, Studio9 students reach levels many had not imagined they could reach before coming here. When your teacher is there for you, and you begin to take safe learning risks, you realize you can do so much more. You can create your future by taking the right courses to chart your path and by getting the support you need to learn to succeed.
Project-based learning and collaboration are cornerstones at Studio9, bringing minds and ideas together to create projects that show we understand the skills and concepts that are taught. Using those lessons to create real-world projects helps us understand what we are learning and why. It is about applying the lesson, not just memorizing it. Creating with knowledge is a far deeper learning. We ask meaningful essential questions in our projects that focus on deeper meaning instead of minor details.
When we say "where education meets the arts," we mean that by combining your academic studies with creative electives in a safe, creative space, you have so many more positive and happy learning days. Then, when we combine academics and arts to create new ideas and art, we see new possibilities and ideas. Art reflects the current and past worlds, so let us use it to observe the past and present as well as to communicate our ideas to the world. Many performances, artworks, songs and creative writings done here come from projects in academic studies. Create a 3D mask or visual art piece using ratios, comparison, geometry and Pythagoras' theorem.
Applied learning experiences strengthen the academic performance of students, increase student retention, and improve employment outcomes post-graduation.
