We prepare students for advanced study and career opportunities through studio classes taught by professional artists/teachers.
The Fine Arts Center of Greenville County, the first specialized arts school in South Carolina, was established in August, 1974.
Students apply to the Center and are selected on the basis of talent, interest, motivation, and commitment to their discipline and are able to study theatre, dance, visual arts, music, creative writing, or digital filmmaking.
The purpose of the Fine Arts Center is to provide advanced comprehensive arts instruction to students who are artistically talented and who wish to take an intensive pre-professional program of study.
Students attend the Fine Arts Center five days a week in the morning or afternoon for 110 minutes of instruction, spending the remainder of their time in other academic work at the home high school.
Each year approximately 400 students attend the Fine Arts Center, and, of that number, some ninety percent go on to higher education.
