“Where Academics and Arts Grow Together”
During a recent study to commemorate the first ten years of operation, Encore did a study of alumni that went to a postsecondary college or university directly out of high school worldwide. Of the students that have graduated, based on surveys of the alumni and testimonials of parents and alumni, Encore students have a high level of passing and “acing” their first year of college when most freshman college students struggle. They attribute this to the academic rigor that is coupled with the work ethic that is instilled in the average Encore student. Over 22% of Encore students are enrolled in an extended day with academic and arts classes to give them the competitive edge. Of the 22% that are enrolled in an extended day, the average student is taking ten or more classes BEFORE joining competitive and social teams.
Encore High School administration sees the opportunities, and encourages both students and faculty to “color outside the lines.” The framers of Encore have worked to create philosophies that are rooted in academic systems but explode with creativity and opportunity.
As we step into our ten-year celebration of school operation, the executive team wanted to figure out how to describe the magic that makes Encore High School so unique and special to people that don’t know anything about it. The challenge was to describe Encore in three sentences or less. After polling staff and students, this is just an example of how special and unique Encore High School is to everyone involved.
- A place where a student is given many opportunities to explore their dreams. They are also given great tools in both the arts and academics to help them succeed after high school.”
- A community where students are encouraged to be themselves and spend time figuring out who they are.”
- A diverse experience that helps young adults realize opportunities available to them academically and artistically.”
- A place where a passionate artist can perfect their original art form while mastering another.”
- An educational institution that prepared me to succeed in university by combining my love of dance with my intellect. I earned a full ride scholarship and am now a college graduate because of the foundation I earned at Encore High School.”
- A place where the fact that I want to be an opera singing doctor can be celebrated!”
