New World School of the Arts
The distinguished history of New World School of the Arts began in 1984 when the Florida State Legislature established the institution to provide artistically talented high school and college students the means to achieve both an academic education and artistic training. In September 1986, NWSA opened its doors to students in grades 10 through 12. NWSA’s audition-based programs, accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art, Dance, Music and Theater, offer the high school diploma as well as a four-year B.F.A. or B.M. college degree.
South Florida’s premier eight-year arts program, NWSA helps students build a strong technical base through an intense, progressive program. Conservatory-style training from an internationally recognized faculty of distinguished dancers and choreographers prepares students for the professional world of dance. The rigorous curriculum includes ballet, choreography, modern dance and world dance.
New World School of the Arts is an educational partner of Miami-Dade County Public Schools, Miami Dade College and the University of Florida.
