My Freshman year I attended this performing arts school. I didn't just attend it for the arts but I would have been the first graduating academic class of this school. I would like to first say it was the best experience of my life but they had a lot of ups and downs of that school. Even though the downs over weighed the ups, my problem was the academic supply and environment. We were split 30 students a piece in the library and one of the many rooms nocca have available. My problem was the moving from place to place not having any high school experience in a real classroom or real cultural teachers like our background. It was more of who the CEO knew or think will listen to him.
I'm not a parent, but I actually attend the Institute going into my sophomore year for musical theatre. For those who want to pursue careers in the arts, NOCCA is definitely the place to be. The school has given me a great experience so far and I've learned a lot. From the summer sessions to half-day to Saturday workshop, NOCCA offers a variety of schedules to fit the student. Any parent should definitely look at this school to enroll their child in.
One of the few 'gems' in the New Orleans Public School System. I graduated in 1990 and had my pick of colleges and universities, with plenty of financial support offered. If your child has a particular and serious interest in the arts, I highly recommend this school. It boasts a brand new state of the art facility and is fairly well funded through private donors as well as through the State of Louisiana (at least it seems this is the case--I could be wrong). Potential students must audition or submit their portfolios for admission. Quite a few famous and professionally working alumni in their various artistic disciplines, which NOCCA loves to boast about if given the chance (and who can blame them). Opportunities abound here for your artistic and creative child.
