Broadway & Beyond - Pathway 1 - High School - STEP #1

 

High School Classes

Lexi decided she wanted to attend the Nassau BOCES Long Island High School for the Arts (LIHSA) in Syosset. Before she was accepted, she went through a multistep admissions process, including two applications, a digital audition, and portfolio submission. Her schedule is now filled with performing arts classes in dance, music, and drama, along with several program requirements.

In this step:

  • Watch the LIHSA video and visit the LIHSA website. Is this Career and Technical Education Program something you would consider? Explain why.

  • Review the Performing Arts pathway. Under program requirements, select two core credit classes you find of interest.  Briefly explain why.

Explore and write down your

findings in the QLV Journal Log.
