Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences

The Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences is a sequence of connected courses (including science, math, and technology) that incorporates project-based learning in a blended environment. All science and math courses meet current CT curriculum standards. Technology courses address important skills and emerging media in the digital arts. Students complete an extended challenge component culminating with a presentation at the CT Student Innovation Expo and have the opportunity to participate in the CT Student Film Festival. Students in the Academy will develop and maintain a digital portfolio and can share their site with peers, parents, prospective employers, and college admissions officers.

Blended learning utilizes a teach facilitated, student centered environment that includes online and experiential components to strengthen classroom learning. Students and teachers meet at colleges and corporate campuses to learn from business professional and field experts.
