Jewel Explains What It Means To Attend an Arts Academy

What sets a pre-professional arts boarding school and a pre-preprofessional arts student apart? Drive, desire, and dedication.

In this short video, Jewel talks about what she learned and expereienced at Interlochen Arts Academy.

“I’d never seen discipline like that…You’d have a cello major that was practicing 6-8 hours on top of all their studies. Every major was just so good and so passionate about what they did that it made me rise and try to be better myself.”

To learn more about pre-professional arts boarding schools, I encourage you to read an article that we published a few years ago (Dedicated Study of the Arts in a Boarding School). It goes into more depth and showcases the three arts boarding schools in the US.
