DNA School of the Arts specializes in developing the next Artists: writers, performers, visual storytellers, musicians, content creators, media innovators, graphic and fashion designers.  Our program is divided between our artists who will major in Film (includes Content Creation, Sports Journalism and Digital Art), Performing Arts (music, drama, and dance), and Visual Arts and those athletes who will take these as electives. We want to continue to expose all of our students to other creative forms of expression and to help them create content to enhance their brand.

According to the National Core Arts Standards, “Arts education supports the social and emotional well-being of students.” We recognize that many of our students come to us with multiple talents. Our goal is to not only create an environment and opportunity for them to explore their artistic interests and boost their self-esteem but also to enhance their interpersonal skills and facilitate teamwork..
