The Academy of Liberal Arts at Newton High School seeks for talented students who have an interest in Performing Arts (i.e. band, chorus, dance, theatre), Visual Arts (i.e. drawing, sculpture), Social Studies/ Sciences, and/or English/ Language Arts. The ALANHS program is an intense four-year liberal arts education program that prepares high school students for the rigors of university studies, while providing them various opportunities to be exposed to broad knowledge of the wider world (i.e. social science, culture, and society). This program develops a student’s sense of social responsibility through community service projects, transferable intellectual and practical skills (i.e. critical-thinking, creativity, communication, and collaborative skills), and provides opportunities to travel abroad. The ALANHS mission is to provide a globally competitive educational experience that is high quality, challenging and inspires all students to make positive contributions to society.

Once completed applications have been submitted, prospective students will be contacted via email for an ALANHS interview on February 29, 2020. The interview process will include an opportunity for students to present a talent that is related to their liberal arts pathway of interest. Presentations may be inclusive of, but not limited to: musical selections, creative writing samples, oratorical speech, creative dance, visual arts portfolio, social science presentation, etc.

The total number of students being accepted into the 2019-2020 ALANHS Cohort has been limited to 56. Finalists will be notified on April 17, 2020, and must confirm acceptance no later than April 24, 2020 at 3:15 p.m. Waitlist finalists will be on standby until June 1, 2020.
